Evaluation of systems, rules and processes for the production, management and sharing of spatial information, in favor of building of integrated and shared cognitive frameworks can:
In addressing the challenges posed by
climate change, it becomes essential to promote – also at the local
level – a kind of planning capable of considering mitigation and
adaptation measures in an integrated way.
Since the effects of climate change are already visible in the territory, the urgency rises to consider adaptation strategies beside to mitigation actions.
of the main problems emerging during the analysis of climate
vulnerability is the unsuitable knowledge on which the process is based.
Data normally processed by public authorities in the land management
processes rarely include variables that are useful to identify
vulnerability produced by climate change.
Another relevant issue concerns public involvement: given the relevance of the social dimension in facing climate change phenomena, public involvement and collaboration is crucial for the definition and implementation of proper adaptation and mitigation strategies and measures.
The new approach suggested for the Public Administration (P.A.) moves away from the concept of “data possession”, and it promotes the sharing of resources and knowledge, as well as cooperation.
To build an innovative (for the detail of information), shared, and integrated knowledge framework is essential to increase urban resilience. It is therefore essential to develop systems and methodologies to find, organize and share the spatial information necessary to perform vulnerability analysis and action plan monitoring.
