Deliverable 1.1: A report on the mapping, characterization and critical evaluation of existing Nature Based Solutions.
This deliverable covered the benefits of NBS in tackling hydrometeorological extremes – flooding, drought, landslides, etc. and barriers that hindering the wider uptake of NBS and presents approaches to help overcome existing social and political barriers. The outcome of this deliverable, will serve as a strong foundation for project activities relating to the design and implementation of NBS such as WP2 and WP3, their evaluation in WP4 and WP5 and evidence to the users in WP7, and WP8 as well as establishing the basis for their market uptake and exploitation activities in WP9. This deliverable is divided into 12 sections. This report contains 215 pages, 15 figures, 32 tables and two annexes
Deliverable 1.2: A report on the overview of the risks and opportunities for all OALs.
The aim of this document is to critically analyse and document hydro-meteorological hazards, their negative consequences and good practice examples of NBS to manage the associated risks in OPERANDUM OALs. The outcomes of this deliverable serve as a foundation for the various
tasks in other WPs of OPERANDUM. Overall, the reviewed documents showed that hydrometeorological risks occur more regularly with a strong increase in intensity to cause significant loss of life and economic damage in OPERANDUM OAL countries and these hazards are projected to increase in severity and duration under future climate change scenarios. In response to this, in OPERANDUM OALs, different types of NBS such as green, blue and hybrid approaches were used and are under implementation. This deliverable is divided into 8Sections. This report contains 123 pages, 42 figures and 20 tables.
Deliverable 1.3: Conceptual framework protocols for co-design and co-development.
The Deliverable presents the conceptual and theoretical foundations of the Living Lab approach in a wider framework of transdisciplinary collaborative research. It gives guidelines and practical tools for OALs to carry out co-design and co-development as well as experiences of using these tools. It also describes the co-creation processes until now as well as the final plans for the NBS of each of the OAL.
Deliverable 2.1: Synthesis report of authorization/permission requirements at the National level.
This deliverable explores the permitting paths inherent to the development of seven NBS projects, so-called Open Air Laboratories (OALs), distributed around Europe, that address specific risks associated to climate-related hazards. The permitting path is strategic for a smooth
implementation of the NBS allowing to prepare the entire project. Procedural flaws may affect the organization and design process of NBS and cause delays and financial issues leading to critical consequences. In a framework of hydro-meteorological risk reduction, the development of NBS will be necessarily compliant with European, National and local regulations.
Deliverable 3.1: Public report about the standards for OPERANDUM OALs: establishment, monitoring and modelling.
This document reports information needed for the set-up of Nature Based Solutions (NBS) at Open Air Laboratories (OALs). It includes the description of the current hydro-meteorological and socio-economic status and identification of climatic and socio-economic drivers for future
hazards. Land use scenarios, built on the identified drivers are described for the OALs. In addition a set of potential NBS solutions are described using the input from the other Work Packages.
Deliverable 3.4: Public report on the development of indicators suitable for monitoring the effects of implemented nature-based solutions (NBS) for preventing impacts of hydro-meteorological hazards.
Public report on the development of indicators suitable for monitoring the effects of implemented nature-based solutions (NBS) for preventing impacts of hydro-meteorological hazards. Superior criteria valid in all open-air laboratories (OALs) are defined which guarantee the feasibility of the derived indicators for monitoring the effects of the respective NBS and informing various stakeholders. The indicators collected from the OALs and the developed classification scheme are presented.
Deliverable 4.1: Public report on the data requirements to assess and monitor the performances of the OALs.
This deliverable is part of Work Package 4 (Data collection and monitoring) under the Task 4.1 and Deliverable 4.1, titled as “Data requirements to assess and monitor OAL performance”. This deliverable is divided into four sections. This report contains 63 pages, 10 tables and 12 figures.
Deliverable 4.2: Data record on extreme events by OAL and by hazard.
The purpose of this document is twofold. First, it presents the characterisation of extreme events occurred in the last 30 years (1989-2018) in the OPERANDUM OALs (in Europe and abroad): after a selection of cases, with criteria established according to hazard and site, the analysis is carried on by looking at their meteorological settings, available local data, and satellite products. Secondly, the technical description of the data used for the analysis and made available through the GeoIKP is presented, allowing the prompt us of the collected data to project partners for
ongoing OPERANDUM activities and to general public.
Deliverable 4.4: Data and report of impacts on land and water conditions of identified extreme events
The objective of this report is to document the impact on land and water condition of the extreme HM past events identified for the nine OAL-s under consideration in the OPERANDUM project. These past extreme hydro-meteorological events were identified in Task 4.2.
Deliverable 5.1: This documents provides a report on the baseline for weather future climate conditions for OALs.
This deliverable provides an analysis of today’s climate in the OALs – which has been made on the basis of an observed and a reanalysis data set, whilst analysisof possible future climates has made use of the state-of-the-art regional climate model data provided by the EURO-CORDEX project.
Deliverable 5.2a: Multi-impacts assessment for OAL and NBS.
This deliverable is part of work package 5 (Multiple impact modelling for assessment and replication) under the task 5.2 and deliverable 5.2, titled as “Multi-impacts assessment for OAL and NBS”. The end-goal of the deliverable is to examine the efficiency and impacts of the NBS deployed in each OAL, through various modelling activities. The deliverable is split in two parts: The first part (part A) presented here contains the methodology followed by each OAL in approaching impact modelling (rationale of model selection, model setup, domain definition, input data, potential evaluation, etc.). The second part (part B) will contain the modelling results and will be prepared at a later time.
Deliverable 6.1: Review on vulnerability and risk assessment specific to Nature Based Solutions
This report presents a systematic literature review on vulnerability and risk assessment frameworks addressing natural hazards, and specifically those used for assessing Nature-based Solutions (NBS).
Deliverable 6.2: Report on conceptual framework, impact chains and indicators.
Deliverable D6.2 presents the output of Task 6.2. This report illustrates the conceptual framework for vulnerability and risk assessment for Open Air Laboratories (OALs) developed based on review of existing frameworks and the impact chains for OALs and stakeholders’ suggestions provided through Focus Group Discussion (FGD) and questionnaire surveys. Furthermore, a broad list of indicators is included in this report. The conceptual framework and the indicators will be used for risk assessment in the OALs during the implementation of Task 6.3 of WP6.
Deliverable 7.13: OPERANDUM GeoIKP deployment user guide.
This deliverable coincides with the establishment of the web portal dedicated to demonstrate NBS for various types of users. The present document represents a practical mini-guide to help the user navigating the portal. The mini-guide is based upon the current state of deployment of GeoIKP (September, 2019) and will be replaced in the future by the official GeoIKP user-guide and video tutorials.
Deliverable 7.14: GeoIKP deployment and fully functional – first update.
This deliverable presents six user guides for the OPERANDUM GeoIKP platform in alignment with the recent second release. This user guide is presented in six different versions with each version tailored to one user profile defined in D7.4 (Citizens, Businesses & Innovation, Scientists, Policymaker, Associations, and News & Media).
Deliverable 7.15: GeoIKP deployment and fully functional – second update.
This deliverable reports on the update of user guides for the OPERANDUM GeoIKP platform. The user guides presented in the previous releases (D7.13 & D7.14) were, firstly, transformed to an online user guide allowing more interaction for the user by, for instance, commenting and reporting issues of the platform. Secondly, the user guides were updated along with the development of the platform and use case examples were added to enhance the usage of the platform.
Deliverable 8.1: Multi stakeholder engagement strategy.
