The impacts of climate change are global in scope and unprecedented in scale: cities will face frequent extreme events in future and the risks for cultural heritage and historic urban centres from climate change will also increase. ARCH will develop a disaster risk management framework for assessing and improving the resilience of historic areas to climate change and natural hazards. Tools and methodologies to support decision making will be designed with the “Foundation Cities” of Bratislava, Camerino, Hamburg and València, in a co-creative approach, involving local policy makers, practitioners and community members. A cohort of cities interested in increasing the resilience of their historical areas (called “Keystone Cities”) will take part in knowledge exchange with ARCH Foundation Cities: this process is based on mutual learning approaches, where both city groups (Foundation and Keystone) act at the same time as mentors and mentees. The main output of the ARCH project will be a coherent, overarching and unified disaster risk management (DRM) framework for historic areas that takes climate change adaptation, heritage management, and social justice into account. The ARCH project will provide also the ARCH Resilience Assessment Dashboard RAD, a web-based tool to assess how well the DRM framework is implemented.||Adaptation||Advocacy, Built Environment, Monitoring of Climate Impacts, Prevention, Protection, Research&Innovation, Risk Management, Technologies, Urban Planning||Scope of the project is to provide tools to policy and decision makers, to better preserve historic urban centres from the effects of climate change.||2019-2022||137||FOUNDATION CITIES: Bratislava, (Slovakia); Camerino (Italy); Hamburg (Germany); Valencia (Spain).||Fraunhofer Institute for Intelligent Analysis and Information Systems IAIS, Germany (Coordinator) ICLEI European Secretariat, Germany Deutsches Institut für Normung e.V., Germany Fundacion Tecnalia Research & Innovation, Spain Italian National Agency for New Technologies, Energy and Sustainable Economic Development, Italy Italian National Agency for New Technologies, University of Camerino, Italy Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia, Italy SOGESCA s.r.l., Italy Research for Science, Art and Technology (RFSAT) Limited, Ireland Mestsky Ustav Ochrany Pamiatok, Slovak Republic Univerzita Komenskeho V Bratislave, Slovak Republic City of Bratislava, Slovak Republic Fundación de la Comunitat Valenciana para la Promoción Estratégica, el Desarrollo y la Innovación Urbana Comune di Camerino, Italy Freie und Hansestadt Hamburg, Germany||ICLEI-European Secretariat, Germany||112||2||https://savingculturalheritage.eu//||F.P.||Italy, Germany, Slovakia, Spain|

Its main objective was to design and validate models and free software, with input from interdisciplinary teams surveyed, using the DELPHI method to facilitate decision-making in risk assessment focused on the preventive conservation of cultural heritage. This project is fundamental in exploring paths to sound stewardship towards heritage resources increasingly threatened by environmental challenges resulting from climate change. The project presents an innovative approach to introduce Artificial Intelligence (AI) methods into a standardized and quality-controlled tool for risk analysis and decision-making in preventive conservation. The outcomes have included the development of three conservation and intervention decision-making models (ARTRISK 1, 2, and 3) and their application to various types of tangible heritage and in different contexts, both European (Spain, Portugal, United Kingdom, and Italy) and non-European (Chile, Colombia, Cuba, Peru, Guatemala, and Ethiopia). One of the models has been turned into free online software, called ART-RISK 3.0, which is helpful for the initial assessment of cultural heritage within urban management and town planning. It performs a multi-scenario vulnerability analysis using a prediction model based on fuzzy logic methods and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to support treatment policies.||Loss&Damage||Risk Management, Built Environment, Prevention, Monitoring of Climate Impacts, Data Collection||The main objective of the research project "Artificial intelligence applied to preventive conservation of heritage buildings" (Art-Risk) is to investigate and develop a new computerized tool for preventive conservation of heritage in urban centers based on artificial intelligence models. Furthermore, Art-Risk wants to be available to organizations and companies dedicated to restoration and rehabilitation. Developing this new method of vulnerability and risk analysis applied to Monuments implies meeting a multidisciplinary team specialized in the protection and conservation of Heritage in the project. Art-Risk team is researchers and professionals in the following fields of knowledge: Chemistry, Architecture, Archaeology, conservators, art history, geology, biology, mathematics, and computer science..||no date available||31||University of Seville, Ministry of Economy, Industry and Competitiveness (Spain)||21||www.upo.es/investiga/art-risk-service/art-risk3||A.S.||Spain|

Athens’s model promotes an accessible-to-all concept among citizens and visitors. It includes solutions for public space use, provisional solutions for the homeless and the unemployed, socio-cultural entrepreneurs’ projects to create new, participatory and sustainable practices to address Athens Cultural Heritage as a basis for urban regeneration. Accessibility to Cultural Heritage is assumed in terms of: physical accessibility to Cultural Values and Cultural Heritage, economic accessibility (free services and paid personalised services), psycho-social accessibility, mainstream accessibility for disadvantaged citizens/visitors, socio-cultural accessibility. Complementary to the Accessibility Model, Athens promotes also participatory consultation methods linking Cultural Heritage and urban regeneration: the consultation processes, comprising forms of interaction, are often mingled with public consultation programmes, complementing and overlapping each other.||Adaptation||Circular Economy, Cultural Activities, Urban Planning||14||ROCK - Cultural Heritage leading urban futures||Main aim of the ROCK Athen's case study is of providing accessibility to Cultural Heritage as a basis for urban regeneration||2020-ongoing||108||Athnes, Greece||2||https://www.rockproject.eu/role-model-cities||A.S.||Greece|
