The 98 Danish municipalities are right now finalizing their action plans for climate change adaptation. More than half of the plans have been through a public consultation and the rest will catch up during the spring 2014. Each plan includes a flood risk mapping and sets the priorities for the local climate change adaptation measures.


Climate adaptation technologies
In December 2013 climate adaptation technologies were presented at the webportal. The input concentrate on technologies related to 1) normal rainfall and cloudbursts 2) sea level rises and 3) emergency preparedness. Read more about technological solutions here




Implementation of the EU Floods Directive
The second step of the Directive includes the preparation of flood hazard maps and flood risk maps for the ten risk areas identified in Denmark under step one. Flood hazard maps and flood risk maps are now available on the internet.
