Information Portal

Swedish Portal for Climate Change Adaptation (2009)

Description

The Swedish portal for climate change adaptation is intended to support society and citizens preparing for climate change consequences. The portal offers comprehensive information and support within a number of areas. The portal contains information about the effects of climate change, risk management, how an adaptation plan can be developed and examples of how climate change adaptation can be integrated into the daily work. The portal provides information to support both short and long-term adaptation. The target group for the portal is currently municipalities and county administrative boards.

The portal is a result of the cooperation between thirteen Swedish governmental agencies - in collaboration with Sweden's municipalities and county councils. Every agency is responsible for their area of expertise and the combination gives a broad spectrum of information.
