UN Habitat’s City Resilience Profiling Programme (CRPT) provides national and local governments with tools for measuring and increasing resilience to multi-hazard impacts, including those associated with climate change.
Lobelia’s climate engine is integrated in the CRPT, helping analyse climate trends and link to other types of data as required to allow the definition of a suitable action plan.
Urban areas are increasingly exposed to the effects of climate change. Lobelia’s climate engine helps local authorities to analyse climate trends and to define suitable action plans to minimize impact on citizens’ lives on health care, transport, water management, energy supply, etc.
Explore future projections of maximum and minimum air temperature, number of tropical nights and frost days, precipitation and other climate variables and discover how they will evolve in the next decades.
Yakutsk is a cold Siberian city, built on periglacial structures characterised by an extreme subarctic continental climate (Köppen-Geiger).
Lobelia projections show that by 2100 the area will experience:
- intense warming with difference up to 4°C between RCP 4.5 and RCP 8.5
- climate wettening with precipitation increase of +60% (RCP 4.5) and +160% for RCP 8.5.

- Impact on transport infrastructure and city buildings due to the collapse of ice cellars.
- The city will continue being prone to floods, especially in spring.
- Lengthening of summer dry intervals correlated to a growing frequency and persistence of hot-weather episodes.
- Increases of precipitation which will favour the pollutant transport and re-distribution in the area.
- Increasing release of methane from thawing Siberian permafrost, likely to further amplify climate warming.
- Potential decrease of energy demand for heating.
