The French environment portal Climatico echoes the Barcelona case study

The French environment portal Climatico has published an article about RESCCUE’s case study in Barcelona, emphasizing the use of insurance data to study the climate impacts in this city. The aim of Climatico is to provide expert but accessible information on climate and biodiversity, which will allow the metamorphosis of the most exposed economic sectors and the most relevant solutions to be anticipated.

RESCCUE project has developed flood depth-damage curves tailored for Barcelona. The curves indicate the permeability of buildings to help determine the vulnerability of elements at risk in Barcelona. These curves help the Spanish city to estimate the economic impact of floods, as well as resilience assessment, planning and management.

An article talking about the topic has been recently published at The Covenant of Mayors website, the world's largest movement for local climate and energy actions which brings together thousands of local governments voluntarily committed to implementing EU climate and energy objectives since 2008.
