Hazards linked to climate change, particularly extreme events, pose risks to the physical conservation requirements of Cultural Natural Heritage (CNH), the safety of occupants and users, and to local economies in CE area. The inappropriateness of emergency and post-disaster actions, illconceived restoration and recovery phases, and lack of specific management plans contribute to vulnerability increase. INACO aims at improving the resilience of the CE regions in facing climate change impacts on CNH within river basin districts. Transnational strategies and integrated web-based solutions as well as risk management plans will be developed to support local authorities in setting up and adopting measures to protect CNH sites exposed to climate change risks. This is because, the integration of CNH within climate change risk management plans at CE is still not exhaustively tackled, both in the assessment of the impacts and mitigation measures. To deal with this shortcoming, INACO will develop, a Joined Strategy for enhancing the resilience of CNH sites exposed to climate risks in CE river basin districts. Thus, integrated web-based solutions supporting technicians, citizens and public authorities will be developed and tested providing integrated solutions for monitoring and protect CNH, in river basin districts, from climate changes. Moreover, an open online course for risk managers will improve their capacity to manage climate-induced risks on CNH sites and a Risk management plan will provide recommendations to heritage managers and decision makers of CE river basin districts for prioritizing and making decision about the best use of available resources to protect CNH. The transnational cooperation will be essential for strengthening response capacities to climate change risks of interested parties and in fostering alignment in the various processes from policy making to practical application with a more conscious awareness of the responsibilities of the involved actors.
