Press release: Saint-Grégoire, 25th January 2023.
In response to climate change, which is at the forefront of concerns for cities and territories worldwide, SIRADEL is launching its brand new “Urban Climate Resilience Toolkit” to combat the increasingly dangerous impacts on our environment and communities.
Supporting territories in their environmental and digital transitions for more than 10 years, SIRADEL has developed an innovative solution to better anticipate and tackle climate change risks, effectively accelerating the development of more sustainable and resilient cities.
Based on SIRADEL’s Digital Twin and simulation and visualization tools, this toolkit first allows to carry out a triple diagnosis of the territory taking into account the presence of vegetation, heat islands of heat or coolness as well as the index of vulnerability to heat waves. The second step consists of determining the areas to be revegetated and dewatering as a priority, then calculating the impacts on the environment and quality of life. Finally, climate simulations make it possible to measure the impact of urban development projects while considering the latest warming hypotheses, so cities can adapt and plan their public policies according to their climate action goals.
By offering a clear vision of a city’s climate change situation, the toolkit – composed of three customizable solutions already deployed in several cities – is a valuable decision-making tool in planning and implementing measurable, effective and sustainable action plans.
“These solutions have been developed to help stakeholders in charge of land development, but also landowners or real estate asset managers to make their assets more resilient to climate change. They are easily customizable to take into account the characteristics of each territory and the associated needs. », Christophe Papin, Smart Solutions Director, SIRADEL.
With this new tool, SIRADEL, aware of the urgency we must face collectively, puts its experience at the service of the building of a more resilient world in environmental and climatic terms, where biodiversity, human well-being and urban infrastructures are all protected and enriched.
