Urban & Coastal Climate Adaptation
Protecting people, nature, and infrastructure against heavy rainfall and storm-surges to increase safety, sustainability, and liveability.
Creating resilient cities and coasts
The world faces flood risks due to increased frequency of storm-surges, rainfall, and urbanisation. Flooding is among the leading climatic threats to human life worldwide, and can even reverse years of progress in poverty reduction.
Global experts with integrated approach
Climate adaption requires sustainable solutions based on an evaluation of flood risks and costs. Our global climate adaptation consultants include engineering specialists, hydrologists, landscape architects, urban planners, and more. We provide evaluations and adaptive measures in coastal zone management, river basin management, water supply, and storm- and wastewater management, to name a few.
Our solutions are based on local natural, technical, and societal conditions. Our integrated approach connects challenges and possible solutions to urban planning, so cities and their coasts can be more resilient and liveable.
