KLIMASKEN is an online tool for evaluating the climate resilience of cities, city districts, municipalities and buildings in terms of greenhouse gas emissions and adapting to the possible impacts of climate change (adaptation). The tool is composed of several dozen indicators designed on the basis of analysis of professional sources, own experience of the professional team, recommendations of international institutions and practical testing in the Slovak Republic and the Czech Republic. For that reason, the tool is applicable especially in the countries of Central Europe.
After entering all the necessary data, the system creates a „climate label“, which allows to clearly assess the development and condition of individual areas of the city, city district, municipality or building and their preparedness for heat waves, drought, torrential rain or extreme weather events. It is also possible to compare cities, city districts, municipalities and buildings over time and between the individual tested territories and objects.
WHAT IS KLIMASKEN FOR?
KLIMASKEN motivates responsible behaviour in the field of climate protection and adaptation to climate change.
KLIMASKEN assesses the current state of climate resilience of cities, city districts, municipalities and buildings and sets baseline for further evaluation.
KLIMASKEN is a good tool for strategic planning, decision-making, project preparation and education.
KLIMASKEN structure is compatible with international requirements, such as the emission reduction and adaptation action plan SECAP.
Exposure to climate change: What is the state and evolution of the environment in which the city, city district, municipality or building is located in terms of the most important manifestations of climate change: rising temperatures, heat waves, precipitation, drought or extreme weather events? The area includes ten indicators (nine for basic assessment and one more for advanced assessment).
Sensitivity and adaptive capacity: What is the vulnerability of a city, city district, municipality or building to the eff ects of climate change? How is the city, city district, municipality or building prepared, what are the properties of individual systems and areas in the city, municipality or building? The area includes sixteen indicators (eight for basic assessment and eight more for advanced assessment).
Greenhouse gas production and reduction (emissions): How does a city, city district, municipality contribute to climate change? What are the direct or indirect greenhouse gas emissions in the city, city district, municipality? How do individual areas contribute to emissions? The area includes fourteen indicators (four for basic assessment and ten more for advanced assessment).
Readiness to implement adaptation and mitigation measures: What measures is the city, city district, or building owners taking to address the consequences of climate change or reduce greenhouse gas emissions? How do these solutions manifest themselves in everyday life? The area includes sixteen indicators (seven for basic evaluation and nine more for advanced evaluation). Each indicator is described in detail in the methodological sheet.
Representatives of public administration (strategic development, spatial planning, environment)
Residents of the city, city district, municipality and representatives of the non-profit sector
Owners and residents of buildings, investors
It is possible to enter and then evaluate and analyze data into the KLIMASKEN system for a municipality (city, municipality, city district) or for a building.Close Continue
