Overview

In this step, you can define your Adaptation Project. For each of the defined main land use categories you can select one of the available Adaptation Strategies if you want to. Once you're done selecting the individual strategies and setting the parameters, you can go back to the Summary page of your Study and trigger a re-calculation. This time the calculation will also be done for the adapted Study scenario.

Available Adaptation Strategies for the Study

Title Description Strategy type
Agricultural park

A (re-) introduction of productive landscapes into city design and development planning in urban and peri-urban areas.

Vegetated areas
Agricultural park

A (re-) introduction of productive landscapes into city design and development planning in urban and peri-urban areas.

Built open space
Drainage areas Built open space
Drainage areas

The bioswales draining effect reduces sewers-directed water flow and, with permeable concrete, reduces the surface run-off effect.

Roads
Green areas

Increase and improvement of sewer system for surface run-off effect reduction.

Roads
Green corridors

Green area with the aim of providing a huge variety of flora by creating habitats for wild fauna thanks to differentiated types of grasses and vegetation.

Vegetated areas
Green insulated building

This strategy mitigates the building overall temperature, promoting a high evapo-transpiration level on the roof and favouring both indoor and outdoor comfort in addition to perimeter facades insulation.
 

Buildings
Green ventilated buildings

This strategy mitigates the building overall temperature, promoting a good evapo-transpiration level on the roof and favouring both indoor and outdoor comfort in addition to perimeter facades ventilation. 

Buildings
New rain gutters, ditches and manholes Roads
Reflective green building

This strategy mitigates the building overall temperature, promoting a high reflection of solar radiation on the roof and favouring both indoor and outdoor comfort in addition to perimeter facades transpiration.

Buildings
Standard Park

Green area with the aim of providing citizens and other visitors with a recreational space in contact with nature.

Vegetated areas
Standard Park

Green area with the aim of providing citizens and other visitors with a recreational space in contact with nature.

Built open space
Urban green spaces

The use of permeable and semi-permeable materials and vegetation helps mitigating urban heat island phenomenon and promotes high transpiration.

Built open space
Water park

Urban and peri-urban park characterized by installation of “pools” which can be used as recreational spaces when dry, and fill up when it rains.
