P-CAT will establish common archetypes of representative of global peri-urbanisation, ranging from. These archetypes will be overlaid on the climatic – biome types and the associated risk layers. The P-CAT tool will draw on existing global and local datasets such as the JRC’s Global Human Settlement Layer (GHSL). The results will be ground-truthed in two case studies in Chennai, India and Greater Manchester, UK.
