The overall aim of SCORE is to design, develop, monitor and validate robust adaptation measures in coastal and low-lying areas to protect them from increasing climate and sea level risks, including coastal flooding and erosion, to enhance their overall long-term resilience.
SCORE is built around 7 specific objectives to address gaps in knowledge, innovation, social acceptance, market opportunity, financing and policy:
Design, implement, and evaluate a novel Coastal City Living Lab framework for 10 coastal cities, integrating Ecosystem-Based Approaches with smart technologies to enhance climate change adaptation and resilience.
Integrate knowledge about EBA efficacy against extreme events, sea level rise and coastal erosion risks.
Improve the social acceptance of EBA based implementation as part of the coastal management solutions.
Develop digital twin solution to smart instant monitoring and control of climate resilience.
Develop, pilot, and demonstrate a smart city early warning system for extreme events.
Strengthen the financial resilience strategies in local and national policies and integrated coastal management plans.
Enhance market uptake of EBA as effective solutions for coastal adaptations to climate change.
