CLIMA-RISK is a transversal project which brings together one of the bodies with most knowledge about risk management and prevention worldwide (Red Cross with HQ in the Canaries, Mauritania and Senegal); and 2 Canary bodies with the most experience and technical capacity to develop technology and studies enabling the guarantee of resilience against climate change effects and improve  response capacity in the event of natural catastrophes (ITC & ULPGC).

CLIMA-RISK will focus its actions on developing ICT studies and tools to strategically plan the territory, ensuring resilience against the effects of climate change in the co-operation space likewise development of technological solutions (prototypes) to ensure the supply of Food, Energy and Water during natural catastrophes.

The geographic scope of actions under the CLIMA-RISK project cover the Co-operation space between the Canaries, Cape Verde, Mauritania and Senegal. Technological actions, studies and developments, some of the patentable for Canary companies so they can have the possibility of exploiting these technologies will be extrapolatable to any region in the world with risk impacts and situations in the face of natural catastrophes due to climate change effects.

CLIMA-RISK Project technical activity will focus on technology development in the following sectors: Renewable Energies, Water, Scientific Computation & Technology (ICT Tools), Architecture and Territorial Planning. The technical actions are:

  • ­Develop ICT software to control storage and provision of technology and humanitarian aid in general.
  • Development of Methodologies for territorial planning for resilience and adaptation in the face of natural catastrophes due to climate change effects.
  • Development of specific architectural modules for emergency situations (Prototype).
  • Development of Energy and Water supply units powered by Renewable Energies for isolated areas on the electric grid in emergency situations due to natural catastrophes (Prototype).
  • Development of an expert calculation and dimensions system (ICT).

INTERREG MAC 2014-2020 Finance Program, European Regional Development Funds ERDF (85%): 2.470.587,65 €

January 2017 – May 2021

Main objective: 

Develop technological solutions and strategies to adapt to Climate Change, likewise risk prevention and management in the face of Natural Catastrophes in countries under the ENP

Specific objectives:

  • Develop systems and tools (including software), connectivity and co-ordination protocols; training tools, and regulations enabling governments to have their own response capacity in natural disaster events.  
  • Develop Technological Solutions for Energy and Water supply in emergency situations due to Natural Catastrophes.
  • Develop Architectural and Territorial Planning studies for Resilience according to Natural Risks.
