Description

Dutch National Programme for Spatial Adaptation to Climate Change (ARK).

Since 2006 various Dutch government departments cooperate with the Associations of Provincial Authorities (IPO), Netherlands Municipalities (VNG) and Water Boards (UvW) in the National Programme for Spatial Adaptation to Climate Change (ARK).

The first product of this programme was the Dutch National Adaptation Strategy, which was approved in November 2007. This strategy (comprising two documents: an inter-administrative policy paper and a more extensive policy paper) describes in general what is necessary to make the Netherlands climate-proof. It highlights an innovative and intersectoral approach and encourages parties to reflect, cooperate, reconsider and take action.

The National Adaptation Strategy led up in 2009 to the National Adaptation Agenda that aimed to make the plans presented in the strategy concrete.
