A Showcase is a concrete application of one or more Solution Offers, e.g. a concrete application of an Expert Service in a specific location or an implementation / usage of a tailored or generic Tool or Product (Climate Service) in a specific location.
The CSIS Screening Study "Adaptation Scenarios for Metropolitan Resilience Planning in the Naples metropolitan area" is a Showcase of the CSIS Screening Tool used in conjunction with a tailored Data Package (Heat Wave and Pluvial Flood Hazards, Population and Urban Infrastructure Elements at Risk, . etc.). The usage of a specific physical product, e.g. painting a 1.000m² wall building with C02-absorbant paint in the city of Rome is another Showcase (of the Solution Offer "C02-absorbant paint product"). More specifically, this particular Showcases demonstrates how the product is actually used as Adaptation Option.

|Cheonggyecheon Canal Restoration The project concerns the restoration of a highly polluted and covered waterway through the demolition of almost four miles of highway infrastructure that divided the city into two parts. The goal is to restore a natural water retention basin useful to the city. A particular place in the project is the point of origin of this seven-mile green corridor that begins in the city's central business and commercial district. The intervention in this symbolic point consisted in the creation of a pedestrian zone focused by this former way of vehicular access that brings people to the historic ChonGae river, mitigating floods and improving water quality.||Adaptation Options: Appraisal||heat, flood||infrastructure|
|cids GUP-MV (WFD)
The European Water Framework Directive (WFD) commits the member states to achieve a better qualitative status of Europes water bodies. cids GUP-MV is a software to plan and monitor WFD compliant Water body management measures and is a part of the water information system of the German state Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, operated by the State Agency for Environment, Nature Protection and Geology.
The solution supports waterway managers in the organisation and planning of waterway maintenance measures. Key is a seamless integration of required (e.g. hydrologic) information.
|Climate change impact assessment for urban wastewater systems
Urban wastewater systems are very vulnerable to potential climate change impacts, particularly to a potential increase of extreme flood events and more spilled out pollution loads to receiving waters. Due to the hydraulic limitation of waste water treatment plants (WWTPs) it is not possible to treat the whole amount of drained water at WWTPs; thus the runoff in combined sewer systems has to be either discharged at combined sewer overflows (CSO) into receiving waters or temporarily stored in reservoirs.

|Cloudburst investigation and adaptation measures – Stockholm city
WSP has within the Clarity project carried out a cloudburst investigation for an area within the city center of Stockholm. The area around Birger Jarlsgatan and Berzelii Park was chosen. The area of interest is within the city center, with many old buildings and societally important objects like subway entrances, and has been identified as a high-risk area for pluvial flooding.

|Environmental Information Management 2020 / UBA Vienna
These showcases serve to clarify possible strategies, concepts and approaches that contribute to sustainable environmental information management at the Federal Environment Agency. UBA's goal is to achieve complete integration (including overlapping access) of the environmental information sources/data stocks available at UBA by 2020. From UBA's point of view, intersecting research and access are one of the essential basic functionalities for better (efficiently) providing data-based services in the future (2020).

|Flood risk assessment – multiple flood hazards Jönköping City
The city of Jönköping is exposed to multiple flood hazards from Lake Vättern, small rivers and from cloudburst. The risk of flooding is supposed to increase in the future due to climate change. To support climate change adaptation in the municipality, WSP has done a risk assessment towards multiple flood hazards. Results point out areas at risk and can help the municipality to prioritize adaptation measures.

|Heavy rain hazard map for the city of Wuppertal
The city of Wuppertal, in cooperation with WSW Energie & Wasser AG and Dr. Pecher AG, has had heavy rain hazard maps drawn up. These maps show areas that can be particularly affected by heavy rainfall.

|Jade Eco Park The project consists of the landscape and architectural design of a new park on the site of the old Taichung airport, with recreational, sporting, family and tourist activities.The aim of the project is to create a park that can be used by people in complete safety as regards the effects of climate change. The project is divided into several interventions that create outdoor spaces in which the excesses of the hot and humid subtropical climate of Taichung are reduced. Starting from the existing climatic conditions as a starting point, three gradation climatic maps have been defined following the results of three computational fluid dynamics simulations (CDF). The result is a diversity of microclimates and a multitude of different experiences in different areas of the park which they could occupy freely depending on the time of day or month of the year. Climatic devices are classified into three categories: cooling devices, drying devices, pollution control devices.||Adaptation Options: Appraisal||heat, flood||infrastructure|

|Naturbad Riehen The Swiss municipality of Riehen, bordering the city of Basel, lies in the gently widening valley of the River Wiese, near to its confluence with the Rhine. For decades, the local population has yearned for a new public swimming pool to replace the obsolescent baths by the riverbank, with various attempts having failed. After winning a design competition in 1979 and several unrealised projects in the following years, Herzog & de Meuron again started to ponder the options for a new bathing facility. The changed perspectives brought by the intervening years prompted the idea of abandoning the conventional pool concept with its mechanical and chemical water treatment systems in favour of a pool closer to a natural condition with biological filtration.||Adaptation Options: Appraisal||heat, flood||infrastructure|
|Pluvial flooding modelling in Stockholm
In the Stockholm case study, the effect of vegetation on inundation depths and flow velocities is investigated by including potential green areas in the MIKE model. The green area factor as well as other mitigation measures as well as their pros and cons, are discussed and prioritised in a workshop context including a group of end-users, representing: city planners, urban water managers as well as representatives from the road and park maintenance departments.

|Saint Kjeld's Kvarter, Tredje natur The district met several problems mainly linked to flooding, many times during the winter. This was caused by the enormous presence of asphalt and the totally absence of vegetation and green surfaces, a result of the car-centred lifestyle. Starting from the analysis of ceiling permeability situation, the designers defines a master plan where big place is given to the increase of ceiling permeability mainly through green surfaces and the reducing of car lanes sections.||Adaptation Options: Appraisal||flood||infrastructure, vegetation|

|Tool for cost-efficient measures for the flood risk mitigation
The city of Wuppertal, a town with approximately 350,000 residents, is the biggest town in Germany that is situated in hill country (from 98 to 353 m above mean sea level). It is located in the steep, narrow, and long valley of the Wupper river. There are several creeks on both sides of this valley that open into the storm water sewage system before they finally end in the Wupper.
