Database of Good Practices



Based on the work of all project partners and the information gathered, the HOPE project will develop an online database of good practices around older adult care during the heatwaves, which will be shared worldwide. ISRAA Treviso will have a leading role in its development. The project results will be implemented in the own care services of the partners and available for use, replicability and adaptation to all interested Authorities. The Portuguese partner (SCMA) will be responsible for the development of the Guidelines for the older adult ecosystem on the topic of heat management. These guidelines recommend how to manage the older adults care before, during and after the heatwaves. Together with the associated partners of Rotterdam, Genero (network of older adult organisations); SOL Network (welfare institution and supplier of welfare services); Laurens(organisations for older adults care), Treviso (Province of Treviso; Municipality of Treviso, ULSS 2 Marca Trevigiana) and Portugal Amadora (Municipality of Amadora; Lusofona University) and the Local Advisory Boards, we will collect the best practices and research about the ecosystem on what is currently done in heatwave management, what is missing and what works well.

What is meant about “Good practice”

A good practice is not only a practice that is good, but a practice that has been proven to work well and produce good results, and is therefore recommended as a model. It is a successful experience, which has been tested and validated, in the broad sense, which has been repeated and deserves to be shared so that a greater number of people can adopt it. Or ‘Good practices’ can be defined in multiple ways. However, a thread common to most definitions implies strategies, approaches and/or activities that have been shown through research and evaluation to be effective, efficient, sustainable and/or transferable, and to reliably lead to a desired result. (European Commission)

The Criteria:

  • Effective and successful;
  • Environmentally, economically and socially sustainable;
  • Gender sensitive;
  • Technically feasible;
  • Inherently participatory;
  • Replicable and adaptable;
  • Reducing disaster/crisis risks, if applicable.
