Standardization in urban climate adaptation

The RESIN project has developed standardised approaches to help cities develop their adaptation strategies and strengthen their resilience. Key products are:  A tool for impact and vulnerability analysis (IVAVIA1);  a decision support tool (E-Guide);  a library of adaptation options; This report describes standardization activities that have been carried out as part of the RESIN project.2 Worldwide, standards are being used to provide a degree of certainty that products and processes meet requirements for quality and performance. Standards can play a similarly beneficial role with regard to climate change adaptation, by making possible a faster and broader uptake of knowledge and best practices through an internationally recognised and trusted platform.
