prCWA 17727 – Disaster Risk Management / Climate Change Adaptation Framework


While negative impacts of climate-related and other hazards on urban areas are widely discussed, their impacts on historic areas within cities and communities have not been studied extensively enough. Draft CWA 17727 defines an integrated approach that combines disaster risk management (DRM) and climate change adaptation (CCA) activities for historic areas in communities. The overall DRM/CCA Framework in prCWA 17727 includes a:

  • characterisation of historic areas and their exposure to natural and climate change-induced hazards,
  • set of requirements and recommendation on how historic areas can become more resilient,
  • step-by-step process to manage disasters, and to perform and monitor resilience-building activities.

By publishing the draft document for review and commenting the development group of prCWA 17727 wishes to get feedback on the content, for example from:

  • community/historic area decision makers, technical staff, 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 heritage managers, public administrators, sustainability and resilience officers, civil society associations, non-governmental organisations, academic and research institutions, as well as consultancies.

Commenting Deadline: March 25
