Climate change poses an interesting challenge for policy makers: the climate is changing but the exact timing and dimensions are unclear. Much is known about the consequences of climate change for spatial planning, water safety and health, but at the same time much is uncertain. What is a sound adaptation strategy and how do we develop it? Which instruments can we use?
The Knowledge for Climate programme (2007 – 2014) developed instruments to look closely at the consequences of climate change, develop adaptation strategies and tools to optimize adaptation options and choose the best possible solution.
