Embarking on spatial adaptation

If we want to continue to enjoy living, working and recreation in our cities and villages we need to adapt their spatial planning to the future. By joining forces we can prepare for climate change, factoring in heavy rainfall, periods of drought and heat, and the impact of potential floods. The Spatial Adaptation Knowledge Portal offers knowledge and experience in this field, and helps you embark on spatial adaptation. The Guide to Spatial Adaptation featuring the Analysis, Ambition, and Action steps is a practical tool for climate-proof and water-resilient spatial planning. The Guide supports the Delta Decision on Spatial Adaptation, within the framework of the Delta Programme.
