Climate change is likely to increase the risk of damages caused by extreme weather. The study shows that residents and visitors of Haarlem will increasingly experience the impacts of climate change over the coming decades.
With the Bangladesh Delta Plan project in its final stage, the focus shifts towards the implementation phase. An important step in this process is the transfer of knowledge and tools to the Bangladeshi institutions that carry on with the implementation process
Together with two partners, CAS explored what an adaptation toolkit for Flanders should look like. The adaptation toolkit supports cities and municipalities to develop adaptation plans and policies to reduce their vulnerability.
Climate adaptation doesn’t it cost a lot of money? Or can it also bring us benefits? The municipality of Amersfoort asked CAS to make an indicative calculation of what costs can be avoided if Amersfoort adapts to climate change.
In the context of the preparation of the Regional Adaptation Strategy, CAS made an interactive climate atlas for the region. With the climate atlas, municipalities are able to quickly obtain a spatial picture of (future) challenges in the municipality.
Not only is our climate changing, but also our society. On behalf of the Dutch water board Vallei and Veluwe, CAS carried out an interactive trend analysis that allows combining the effects of future climate change and future social-economic conditions.
The interactive climate atlas for the province Gelderland outlines possible effects of a changing climate and land use. This creates the basis for the strategy development for the province.
The province of South Holland is one of the leaders in terms of climate change adaptation. The province developed an interactive atlas of climate impacts together with CAS, the Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute (KNMI) and water boards.
CAS contributed to the preparation of a climate adaptation plan for the province of Antwerp in Belgium. We mapped the impacts of climate change for the province and formulated strategies that limit the impacts of climate change.
The Knowledge Portal for Climate Adaptation is a Dutch platform that provides climate information services and brings together governments, policy makers, professionals and researchers to work towards a climate proof and water resilient Delta for the Netherlands.
The Bangladesh Delta Plan 2100 Formulation Project is in its last stages. How can we contribute to sustaining the rich information, data and experiences that have been generated and collected in the BDP2100 project and how can we support the implementation process
Bangladesh is often referred to as one of the most vulnerable countries to climate change. But what does that actually mean? And which sectors and regions are most affected and are all people equally affected in Bangladesh? And what about gender aspects?
Like the Netherlands, Bangladesh needs to keep its heads above water in a dynamic delta. Due to the effects of climate change, these challenges will be even greater in the future. Read how CAS contributed to the Bangladesh Delta Plan 2100.
The water board Rivierenland works on its climate proof development. A first and important step is the collection and management of available and relevant information on climate change in the region. CAS supported the water board with this first step.
CAS visualised the results of a climatescan into a Story Map. The atlas involves pluvial flooding, drought and heat maps. Besides, also potential locations for measures are inventoried.
Due to climate change, the frequency and intensity of floods, droughts and heat events is projected to further increase for the Indus, Ganges and Brahmaputra river basins. This affects the lives and livelihoods of 1.5 billion people.
The interactive atlas shows (future) threats of coastal and river floods, drought and heat stress on a map. In the atlas, you can search for your municipality and have a look at what is going on in your area.
Climate change is a complex phenomenon that involves many scenarios and uncertainties. The interactive regional climate atlas shows what changes the region of Rotterdam can expect in the future due to climate change.
A climate atelier is an interactive design workshop in which climate change knowledge is used to support spatial planning or strategy development.Together with Alterra and GrondRR, CAS organised several climate ateliers in different municipalities in Gelderland.
Rotterdam has the ambition to become climate-proof by 2025. Therefore, Rotterdam asked CAS to develop an interactive atlas that supports the development of the Rotterdam Adaptation Strategy (RAS).
