Climate change & adaptation

We live in a rapidly changing environment, posing unprecedented pressures on cities and water systems. Make your business and water system ready for the future. Get adaptation strategies tailored to your situation, and supported by scientific analyses.

Get tailored adaptation plans

Cities, industries and water managers are all impacted by climate change. We quantify those impacts using climate scenarios, tailored to your site and situation. Ensure yourself of the best no-regret strategies that remain effective on the long term. We support decision making in regard to climate adaptation planning, formulate policy recommendations, and design specific measures. Our multi-scenario simulation approach effectively deals with the uncertainties inherent to climate change.

See the quantified impacts of trends

Next to climate change and changing rainfall extremes, we quantify the impacts and consequences of urbanization and increasing impervious surfaces, population growth, management changes and other trends.
