The Danish portal for Climate Change Adaptation presents
the existing knowledge on climate change and climate change
adaptation within a number of areas.
The information is targeted at individuals, municipalities and
businesses. The portal provides information on the newest research
and development within climate change adaptation in Denmark and
abroad. The portal also contains a number of specific examples
(case descriptions) of adaptation measures.
The portal is continuously updated. It provides the
possibility to view graphic representations of climate data and
find information on regional climate change in Denmark. Interactive
tools and systems to support decision-making are also available on
The portal was developed by the Task Force on Climate
Change Adaptation under the Danish Ministry of the
Environment in collaboration with an array of other government
institutions. Work in the individual institutions is coordinated by
a working group set up for the purpose.
The Danish Portal for Climate Change Adaptation was
originally created on the basis of an initiative in the former
government's climate adaptation strategy: "Danish strategy for
adaptation to a changing climate", made public in March 2008.
