Climate Adaptation for Rural Areas

The aim of this research programme was to assess the effects of climate change and adaptive strategies (i.e. sets of concrete adaptation measures) on agriculture, nature and other land-use functions in the rural landscape of the Netherlands (read more). The strategies that the Consortium assessed are meant to:
  • achieve a climate proof ecological structure that allows meeting high standard climate proof nature targets
  • give positive perspectives to agriculture, the drinking water sector and other land-use functions
  • optimize the overall functionality of the landscape, in terms of water management, biodiversity, agriculture, drinking water and recreation
