Information Portal

Danish Portal for Adaptation to Climate Change (2008)

Description

The Danish Portal for Adaptation to Climate Change (klimatilpasning) presents 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 includes 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 available on the portal.

The portal is anchored in a cross-cutting "Coordination Forum for Climate Change Adaptation", including representatives from nine ministries, Local Government Denmark and Danish Regions.
