National Center for Scientific Research Demokritos EU-CIRCLE & platform presentation ATHANASIOS SFETSOS on behalf of the EU-CIRCLE consortium EU-CIRCLE in a nutshell Make the interconnected and interdependent Critical Infrastructures more resilient to climate change Development of a validated Climate Infrastructure Resilience Platform (CIRP) that will:
assess potential impacts due to climate hazards, provide monitoring through new resilience indicators and support cost-efficient adaptation measures. Addressing community requirements, either in responding to short-term hazards and extreme weather events or in deriving the most effective long term adaptation measures. Move from CI specific resilience to holistic one
VVG , 11th May 2017 EU-CIRCLE analysis Identify, assess and quantify the risks that CI are exposed to, and how these will evolve under no-adaptation policy options Identify new risks that may apprear under future climate conditions, or due to new CI being planned (or expanded) in the future
Assessing risks in the future under the application of different adaptation options policies and measures VVG , 11th May 2017 How far into the future would you consider climate change analysis CS1: heatwaves and dryness on electricity networks CS2: maritime

Participants Approx. 50 persons National Authorities CI operators Electricity and ICT are the two most important sectors CI operators are aware of natural hazards Long term disruptions, port becomes critical
ICT and electricity sector are more prepared CI have become resilient to electricity disruptions due to recent events Interdependencies during disasters need further elaboration Do not consider climate change EU-CIRCLE has received funding from the European Unions Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 653824 Important to validate if current
procedures will be adapted under future climate scenarios Contact Details Dr. George Boustras ([email protected]) Louisa arie Shakou ([email protected]) Cleo Varianou Mikellidou ([email protected]) VVG , 11th May 2017 The CIRP Objectives The primary objective was to:
design and develop a prototype solution for detailed modeling of large scale interconnected Critical Infrastructures exposed to multiple hazards due to Climate Change. Assess the direct and indirect impacts and assess cost efficient adaptation of solutions in different types of scenarios. CIRP aims to provide a generic plug-and-play environment for different and diverse types of impact assessment simulation models
CIRP will apply partners capabilities (models, climate data, risk resilience assessment, adaptation scenarios) in the suggested test cases.

reception from ships, the storage and sending by carriages or cars the oil products. Figure 1. Piping at the pier of Gdynia Port VVG , 11th May 2017 Torbay Council - University of Exeter Case Study 3 Urban Coastal Flooding, Torbay, UK
watercourse flooding Coastal flooding due to overtopping of sea defences during high tides + easterly winds. All sources of flooding are exacerbated during high tides and heavy rainfall when capacity of the outfall is reduced. Historic Flooding - Coastal Flooding Coastal flooding at Torre Abbey and Livermead in Torquay. Roads between Torquay and Paignton having to be closed. Bottom right photo Effects of coastal flooding at Goodrington, Paignton, a major tourist area of Torbay.
Storm Damage - Critical Infrastructure Storm damage to Livermead sea wall in 2013/ Breach of Defence Damage to the highway, sewage rising main (serving the whole of Torquay); high pressure gas main at risk of failure. If sheet piling hadnt protected the gas main all residents/businesses within 250m radius would have to be evacuated.

Any ?-edge-connected graph has an ?(polyloglog(?)/k)-thin tree. For any cost function, the integrality gap of the LP Relaxation is polyloglog(n). Now, I can show Cheeger's inequality. Cheeger's inequality for graphs is proved by alon and milman back in 1985.
