Trainer-to-trainer session held in Murcia

Compete4SECAP’s fifth peer-to-peer training session took place in November 2019 in the city of Murcia (Spain) where project partner Eurovertice is based. This session continued the focus on climate adaptation already begun in Bordeaux in 2018 and expanded on in Budapest earlier in 2019. This session focused in particular on the baseline analysis, i.e. Risk and Vulnerability Assessment, evaluating both quantitative and qualitative approaches. The overall objective of the P2P session was to help partners (and one guest from the municipality of Aguilas in Spain) to upgrade their SEAPs to SECAPs, including new mitigation and adaptation targets for 2030.

During the session, several partners shared their SECAP development experience, mainly departing from an established SEAP, with the rest of the group. Daniel Rodik from Croatian consultancy DOOR outlined his experience applying the IVAVIA impact chain methodology introduced at the previous P2P session in Budapest to support the municipality of Vrsar (Croatia) in undertaking a Risk and Vulnerability Assessment.

Host partner Eurovertice led an exercise to familiarise the group with sourcing data on climate projections from national websites. This session took place at the Murcia Science Park, and followed on from an internal project meeting the previous day, where representatives of the Murcia municipality welcomed the project team to the city.
