Information Portal



ClimateScan is an interactive web-based map application for knowledge exchange on (over 5000 in 2020) ‘blue-green’ projects mostly on urban resilience, climate proofing and climate change adaptation (CCA) around the globe, with a good European coverage.

It involves over a thousand registered (public and private) participants around the world coordinated by the Hanze University of Applied Sciences (NL). Most contributors upload their projects in Climatecafes: an international field education concept involving different fields of science and practice for capacity building in climate change adaptation. ClimateScan has no policy mandate nor direct link to a policy regulation; however, it does work also with the Dutch national government to find solutions on CCA. The showcased practical local initiatives (called ‘projects’ in the portal) cover all the approaches of Nature-based Solutions (NbS) to CCA and disaster risk reduction (DRR). The projects are classified by (seven) sectoral focus topics (water, people, nature-biodiversity, heat, energy-climate mitigation, urban agriculture and air quality), holding over 20 categories.
