The EU Task Force for climate neutral and resilient historic urban districts
The EU Task Force for “Climate neutral and resilient historic urban districts” is an initiative that has been established by the Horizon 2020 projects SHELTER, HYPERION, ARCH in response to and support of the Horizon 2020 ‘Heritage Alive’ orientation to “[increase] resilience and sustainable reconstruction of historic areas to cope with climate change and hazard events”, following in the footsteps of earlier projects.
The mission of this Task Force is to co-ordinate EU efforts to make historic and contemporary urban districts climate neutral and strengthen their resilience to the effects of climate change and natural hazards as well as the resilience of the communities depending on those areas.
The three sister projects i.e. SHELTER, HYPERION, ARCH kicked off the “EU Task Force for Climate Neutral and Resilient Historic Urban Districts” on June 23rd 2021.
The EU R&I Task Force for Climate Neutral and Resilient Historic Urban Districts has reached a great result consisting of the elaboration of a Joint Paper titled 'Paving the Way for Climate Neutral and Resilient Historic Districts'.
This document aims to provide an overview of the challenges faced by practitioners and researchers when jointly addressing the needs of resilient historic districts and provides an initial set of recommendations produced by the task force to address these challenges
