The Climate Adaptation Atlas (in Dutch) shows where climate effects occur and how these correspond with vulnerable functions (for example, greenhouse horticulture, housing and open ground agriculture). Alterra, Deltares, KNMI, Geodan and TNO, together the Climate Adaptation Services Foundation (CAS), jointly developed the Climate Adaptation Atlas.
In the Climate Adaptation Atlas, information is brought together that can be used to estimate the effects of climate change on the – future – functional uses in an area (such as nature, agriculture and housing). This information consists of maps containing temperature and rainfall data, maps containing data about water shortages, excess water and floods, and maps about salination and heat.
For local councils, water boards (in Dutch) and provinces, the Climate Adaptation Atlas is a logical point of departure when working on the climate-robust policy that is applied, for example, in spatial development strategy. The data can be customised for each region and incorporated in reports. For specific spatial reports, climate workshops with a touch table (Phoenix) are provided. The Climate Adaptation Atlas method has also been successfully applied abroad, for example, in Bangladesh.
