Researchers investigate the needs of information about natural disasters for climate change adaptation

Our knowledge is steadily growing about the climate that we can anticipate and the increased risk of heat waves, cloudbursts, floods and temporary sea level changes in the event of powerful storms. Now researchers shall improve knowledge concerning the information that early climate change adopters require to be able to make decisions. This, in its turn, shall stimulate more effective decision-making about climate adaptation.
