ARCH

Saving Cultural Heritage

Objective

ARCH will develop a standardized disaster risk management framework for assessing and improving the resilience of historic areas to climate change-related and other hazards. To support decision-making at appropriate stages of the management cycle, different models, methods, tools, and datasets will be designed and developed. These include:

  • technological means of determining the condition of tangible and intangible cultural objects, as well as large historic areas; information management
  • systems for georeferenced properties of historic areas and hazards;
  • simulation models for what-if analysis, ageing and hazard simulation;
  • an inventory of potential resilience enhancing and reconstruction measures, assessed for their performance;
  • a risk-oriented vulnerability assessment methodology suitable for both policy makers and practitioners;
  • a pathway design to plan the resilience enhancement and reconstruction of historic areas;
  • an inventory of financing means, categorized according to their applicability in different contexts.

The project ensures that results and deliverables are applicable and relevant by applying a co-creation process with local policy makers, practitioners, and community members. This includes the pilot cities Bratislava, Camerino, Hamburg, and Valencia. The results of the co-creation processes with the pilot cities will be disseminated to a broader circle of other European municipalities and practitioners.
