The consequences of climate change are becoming increasingly evident. This intensifies the pressure to adjust social-ecological systems to cope with these changes. Climate adaptation includes actions like effectively and proactively managing increasing occurrences of heatwaves, droughts, and heavy rainfall events. It also involves addressing gradual changes, such as the proliferation of invasive species.
Our approach aims to broaden the understanding of climate adaptation and make it accessible for practical implementation. We not only seek to understand the challenges and possibilities presented by sustainable climate adaptation measures but also to better discern limitations and areas of potential conflict. With the objective of enhancing local adaptive capabilities, we collaborate with stakeholders in order to develop suitable strategies and initiatives for various areas of intervention such as water resources, structural adaptations, and biodiversity conservation. Our primary emphasis lies on local communities, particularly those that are vulnerable.
