ICARIA celebrates its second CoP to present the Decision Support System (DSS) and the Trial Guidance Methodology (TGM)

  • The European project celebrates its second Community of Practices (CoP), framed in the Barcelona Metropolitan Area case study, to present the progress of the project and the solution that is being developed

After the success of the first CoP, which took place last june, ICARIA once again invited its stakeholders to present the risk assessment models and tools that the project is developing, as well as the methodology and organization of the Trial Guidance Methodology (TGM)

ICARIA, a European project with regional impact

The event brought together key stakeholders to play an active role in the implementation and development of this global project with regional impact, specifically in the Barcelona Metropolitan Area. AQUATEC, a company of the Agbar Group, and the Barcelona Metropolitan Area  (AMB) coordinated this CoP in collaboration with Aigües de Barcelona, the Foundation for Climate Research (FIC), the Catalonia Energy Research Institute (IREC) and Cetaqua, Water Technology Centre, project partners.

The Catalonia Meteorological Service, the Catalan Office for Climate Change, the Consortium of Insurance Compensation, TERSA, Endesa and EcoParc 1 were the external entities that also participated in the CoP. They had the opportunity to present their needs and expectations regarding the final products and tools that are currently being developed in the project, such as the Decision Support System (DSS) and the Holistic Resilience Assessment tool. 

With this in mind, several proposals on risk assessment measures and impact quantification were presented in order to open a validation and co-creation phase among all stakeholders.

As part of the activities, participants also delved into the methodology and organisation of the Trials Guidance Methodology (TGM), assessing the objectives, gaps and questions related to the Trials; examining the proposed scenarios and discussing the roles of the different stakeholders within the Trials.

This second Community of Practices (CoP), focused on the Barcelona Metropolitan Area case study, is another milestone on the road to climate resilience. 

The active participation of all stakeholders in the development of the project is essential to ensure that the tools and models developed are in line with the needs of the territory.
