The Climate Adaptation Services foundation (CAS) is a non-profit organisation that provides products and services to anticipate the impacts of climate change. CAS provides support by offering insights into (local) climate impacts, as well as the methods and tools necessary for establishing climate-proof areas.
CAS was founded within the context of the Dutch national research program “Knowledge for Climate” (2008-2014) and builds on the knowledge and experiences gained in the program. Together with various knowledge institutes and consultancies, we work together on the update of the Climate Impact Atlas and the Knowledge Portal for Spatial Adaptation: the platform for climate adaptation in the Netherlands.
We have visualized the current and future impacts of a changing climate for many Dutch municipalities, water boards and provinces; and contributed to Climate Ateliers. Within Europe, we are active in developing climate services, amongst others within Era4CS and Copernicus. In addition, we are involved in projects in Southeast Asia. The project map gives an overview of our projects.
Our starting point is 'keep it simple'. Focus on the information that the local official, water expert, adviser or other professional can work with.
CAS is located in the water tower in Bussum, the most sustainable office building in the Netherlands (2011). Read more about the water tower on the contact page.
