Abstract: Climate Change (CC) is nowadays one of the most important concerns for urban management. Given its scalability, technology can take an important role to help city managers identify and mitigate specific CC-related problems. Herein, an innovative and user-friendly web application is presented to empower city managers with a tool to cope with CC, giving them detailed information, accessible from anywhere. The usage of this app allows city managers to decide on optimized measures to address vulnerabilities to CC in their city. A methodology of city assessment that goes deep into city services processes, their characterization and interdependencies is behind the app, materialized by the Resilience Assessment Framework (RAF), identifying the specific areas and topics that have higher vulnerability to CC z d . T y’ xp d within the app, at multiple levels, using intuitive and interactive chart and tabular information. Given its generic nature, the RESCCUE RAF App can be applied to other cities and take a major role in the urban resilience improvement to cope with climate change effects. Adaptation for other cities requirements can be developed g dm p f w g RAF’ classification levels are possible.
