Invited Session: Climate Change
Climate Change, Vulnerability through IWMS, Climate Resilience Analysis, Dubrovnik Croatia (0.5 CEU)
Tuesday, September 26, 2017
14:00 – 14:30
Moderator: Tim Flanagan, General Manager, MRWMD, California
The specific project concerns the elaboration of a feasibility study and EU project funding application for an integrated and sustainable waste management system in Dubrovnik, Neretva County in Croatia. The presentation will include the quantification of GHG emissions for each examined alternative scenario of the project concerning an integrated waste management system, the quantification of GHG emissions without the implementation of the project and the incremental approach followed by diagrams. All the calculations have been done according international standards and methodologies. Also the resilience analysis of the project will be presented followed by the vulnerability assessment to climate change (methodology and results) through matrices. Finally risk analysis of the project and adaptation measure will be presented.
By attending this presentation, participants will better be able to discuss the results concerning the GHG emissions after the operation of an integrated and sustainable waste management system in comparison with the without project scenario and to compare also the results from different treatment technologies (aerobic composting, anaerobic digestion etc.) Also the participants will have the opportunity to discuss the resilience analysis of the project, the vulnerability assessment, the risk analysis and the adaptation measures for this project.
