Kostas Test 2

This is a test Innovation report

AdapKIT

Climate Change Adaptation, even when recognized as a priority, is poorly developed and adaptation measures are rarely implemented with a clear understanding of their potential impacts. GeoAdaptive recognizes the gap between the currently available tools that model different types of hazards and those that support clients in the implementation of adaptation measures. AdapKIT aims to merge these into one single tool to be implemented at different scales: regional, urban, neighborhood and building.

Developed by GeoAdaptive

AdapKIT helps businesses, communities, and homeowners get climate ready. The tool provides the insights clients need to assess their vulnerability to extreme natural events, and provides risk reduction strategies through a customized set of adaptation measures prioritized according to their specific needs, opportunities and risks. Beginning with innovative remote sensing technology, AdapKIT quantifies potential short-term financial losses and provides personalized solutions to be implemented.

TRL5. Laboratory testing of integrated system
Technology validated in relevant environment. Fidelity of breadboard technology increases significantly. The basic technological components are integrated with reasonably realistic supporting elements so they can be tested in a simulated environment. Examples include “high-fidelity” laboratory integration of components. AdapKIT was today developed for an initial case study for the city of Torino (Italy). Through that effort, a prototype of the tool was developed and presented in an international conference in Helsinki in September 2017. The demonstration included an Urban Heat Island analysis which was analyzed together with the exposure portfolios. A survey template was developed and the associated adaptation report was produced. All the basic technological components were developed and tested in this case study. Future developments will be tested during subsequent case studies.

See more information about this level and the TRL and SRL levels.

The main components of the system have been tested separately, and an initial integration exercise has been conducted.

How does it work?

AdapKIT is a web-based interface developed to evaluate hazards, exposure and adaptation. GeoAdaptive offers clients a personal login to access the platform and run their analysis. Users provide custom input data defining the hazard of interest with spatial data on specific exposure portfolios (population or infrastructure). The tool enables users to identify the most exposed elements and download a customized report for their study area. Finally, the tool offers a survey which is used to personalize the adaptation analysis. In fact, the user can also generate a report that identifies and prioritizes which adaptation measures can be implemented, offering a preliminary ranking of the suitability for the specific hazard and scale of interest.

Limitations/conditions under which this innovation does not work or is less effective

In order to have powerful results, accurate data must be uploaded. GeoAdaptive can support the clients in the initial data gathering phase. The tool will only function for the defined hazard types.

Added value
The added value of AdapKIT is derived from the capability to develop customized analysis through an online tool that integrates hazard visualization and adaptation assessment. These analyses based on region-specific data can provide solutions across a wide range of scales depending on the clients’ needs.
