Climate adaptation


Increased flood risks and longer dry periods require

changes in infrastructure. But which changes are

needed? Should we stop building in some places, or

should we actually be building dikes? Or is it better to

set aside flood-prone areas for agriculture and fishing?

We do know that the climate is changing but we don’t

know exactly how, or how quickly. Even so, action is

needed. The solution? Climate adaptation pathways

that take a range of scenarios into account and result in

the right investment at the right time.
