Strategic decision support tool for adaptation to climate change on a regional and municipal level in the Rhine area


Global climate change and its consequences affect a wide range of spatial levels - from entire regions to individual municipalities. Local extreme weather events with its consequences, like small-scale flooding caused by heavy rainfall or heat-related stress on people, have happened more and more often in the past. At the same time, regions have also experienced climate change-related extreme events that have large-scale effects: High and low water levels on rivers not only have a regional effect, but often influence the whole river basin. Because of many different factors – like other location or economic structures – the effects of climate change-related events and depending on that the potential damage in the affected regions, are also different.
