The document specifies a resilience-building framework for historic areas within cities and communities that defines and combines disaster risk management (DRM) and climate change adaptation (CCA) activities in an integrated approach. The framework is applicable for historic areas that face natural and climate change-induced hazards. The framework includes a:
– characterisation of historic areas and their exposure to natural and climate change-induced hazards,
– set of requirements and recommendations on how historic areas can become more resilient,
– step-by-step process to manage disasters, and to perform and monitor resilience-building activities.
This document is intended to be used by decision makers and technical staff at the city/community and historic area levels, as well as by councillors working on risk and vulnerability assessment, climate change adaptation and resilience enhancement. Other stakeholders who may wish to use the document include disaster risk managers, heritage managers, public administrators, sustainability and resilience officers, critical infrastructure managers, service providers, emergency service providers, civil society associations, non-governmental organisations, academic and research institutions, as well as consultancies.
