CASCADE's mid-term review is now published

CASCADE – Community Safety Action for Supporting Climate Adaptation and Development project is a unique, innovative project seeking to improve urban resilience in cities and towns, as well as the overall macro-regional resilience. CASCADE brings together civil protection specialists and climate change adaptation experts to jointly fight the impacts of climate change.

CASCADE’s aim is to adapt existing risk assessment methodology to the climate change context and tailor it to the local level. This methodology will be used in a training course for city officials, responsible for civil protection. CASCADE also strives for initiating a region-wide policy dialogue on the UN Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction as an effective platform for cross-sectorial cooperation between different levels of governance and for greater policy coherence on climate risk assessments.

Nine partners representing seven Baltic Sea Region countries are involved in the project. The materials and results of CASCADE are replicable for all Baltic Sea Region countries and will be available in an easy to use online tool on our project website at the end of the project.

CASCADE has now published the findings and results of the project so far (as of February 2020) in an e-publication “Mid-term review - Cross-sectorial cooperation for climate adaptation and development”. It is intended to serve as an example of an innovative way to respond to the challenges related to climate change via a cross-sectorial approach. – Read the review here:
