Abstract:Building resilience in urban areas through adaptation is necessary to decrease and ideally prevent the damages that result from extreme weather events caused by climate change. This research focusses on the implementation of the first two steps of the Delta Plan for Spatial Adaptation (DPRA) in the cities of Enschede and Zwolle. The objectives of this research are to 1) identify the participatory mechanisms that these cities have followed for the implementation of risk dialogues and 2) to determine the added value of the self-assessment tool, developed by the European Interreg North Sea Region project CATCH, on implementing the risk dialogues. The analysis regarding participatory mechanisms is conducted using the framework of Dietz and Stern which focusses on five aspects, i.e., breadth, intensity, influence, openness and goals. The results of this research can be used by the CATCH+ project to tailor the self-assessment tool to the characteristics of the smaller cities in Overijssel, and to advise and support smaller cities. Furthermore, the results can be used by Enschede and Zwolle to learn from and get inspired by each other, and smaller municipalities to design the implementation of risk dialogues and the participation activities.
