Technologies and methods for climate change adaptation
Over the coming decades we will gradually experience more rain,
more wind, higher water levels and more extreme weather events.
This means that individuals, businesses and authorities must
consider climatic conditions when deciding where to buy a new
house, whether to renovate, where to place warehouses, offices and
porduction buildings, and when planning infrastructure.
In upcoming years, Danish local governments will prepare and
implement climate change adaptation plans. These plans will include
mapping the risk of flooding, and will provide an overview and
allow for prioritising efforts.
Therefore, both well-known and new, effective technologies and
methods will be in demand; in particular solutions to manage the
implications of rising sea levels and more frequent and more
On this page we have put together a catalogue of technologies and
methods within three topics:
Normal rainfall and
The catalogues are not exhaustive and will be updated on a regular
basis as new technologies become available.
Under each topic, you can find inspiration from examples of
climate change adaptation by municipalities and a list of relevant
partnerships and support schemes.
