Local Governance Support Tools for Disaster Risk Reduction and Climate Adaptation Strategies: SEACAP 4 SDG Contribution in the Case Study of the Municipality of Naples
We are pleased to inform you that the University of Naples "Federico II" along with the Naples Agency for Energy and the Environment (ANEA) has developed an article based on their work in the SECAP 4 SDG project titled "Local Governance Support Tools for Disaster Risk Reduction and Climate Adaptation Strategies: The EU Contribution in the Case Study of the Municipality of Naples".
This article belongs to the Special Issue Integrating Climate Change Adaptation and Disaster Risk Reduction in Cities: Approaches, Methods and Tools to Overcome the Implementation Gap in Urban Resilience.
Today’s global context poses ongoing challenges that can be addressed by implementing a systemic and strategic approach directed toward climate-resilient cities. During times of energy and digital transition, managing climate risks involves analyzing sector-specific impacts and fostering a shared commitment at the national and international levels; in this sense, European programs promote the dissemination of good practices and implementation of projects and tools to improve the resilience of communities to climate challenges.
This paper examines the Naples municipality as a case study within the SEACAP 4 SDG capitalization project in the implementation of innovative governance support tools for hazard and climate adaptation, mitigation, and energy rehabilitation to enhance local governance, planning, and design strategies towards a sustainable and low-emission future. Within the creation of a living lab, tools were selected as part of the project, and training sessions were held targeting key stakeholders. The training aimed to form and inform key players about the tools’ potential, leading to their incorporation into the municipality’s strategic action plan for future implementation. This case study has a high repeatability and stands as a starting point for the implementation of this approach in numerous other local municipalities.
