The Climate-proof Together platform is a network for and of professional “Climate Workers” who are engaged in rendering the Netherlands resilient against climate change. Our efforts are focused on waterlogging, heat, drought, and urban flooding. By compiling practical experience and sharing knowledge, we are devising more efficient and faster solutions, which saves us from having to reinvent the wheel time and again. The Climate-proof Together team constitutes the foundation of the network; it is working on the expansion of, the commitment to, and the activities within the network.

Why Climate-proof Together?
The climate is changing, and extreme weather is occurring more and more often. Governments, private parties, and NGOs are focusing increasing attention on climate change. This raises a wide range of new questions. In order to avoid fragmentation, efficient collaboration is imperative.
Some examples of the questions preying on the minds of people: How can I design and manage my public space in a (more) climate-resilient way? How do I compile bite-sized chunks of climate information for my co-workers in the housing, urban development, and environment law departments? What resources should I use to fund climate adaptation measures?
