Adapting to the Climate of the Future

22-12-2004

The global climate is getting warmer. In the 20th century, the average global temperature has increased by approx. 0.6 oC. With the global climate the risk of certain extreme weather events will grow, also in Denmark. We have to accept the fact that the Danish climate is changing. By integrating climate change in planning projects now, Denmark can - with simple means - avoid both unpleasant surprises, unnecessary damage, and large costs. This leaflet does not give ready-to-use answers, but intends to invite decision-makers, business and authorities in Denmark to assess how possible climate changes can be integrated in new projects and in current planning and maintenance activities.
