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.
Climate adaptation city of Bruges
Drawing up an effective, sustainable and quantified climate adaptation plan for the historical city center of Bruges. The project involved a climate risk analysis, quantification of various adaptation measures and a participatory approach.

Quantification and mapping of droughts in Flanders
Development of an operational "drought model" for Flanders to quantify and map droughts under current and future climate.
Drawing up a quantified drought mitigation plan for Leuven
Setting up a drought mitigation plan for the city of Leuven. Different policy strategies are assessed based on a water balance model that includes all relevant sources and users of water on city wide scale.
