Recommendations for climate adaptation

Our earth’s climate is changing rapidly. This is evident from observations and repeatedly reported in scientific publications. It’s important to realise that climate change is already happening. We urgently need to adapt to a changing future.

Knowledge on climate change is necessary to take the right measures. In the SRJS-programme we focussed on improving this at landscape level. Climate resilience studies and district-level climate adaption plans were conducted to support evidence-based monitoring.

Recommendations incorporated

For example, the recommendations from climate studies conducted by Naturalis and Deltares were incorporated into Langsa city’s spatial plan in Aceh, Indonesia. These recommendations are helping to mainstream climate adaptation in district development programmes, and to shift district government perspectives on climate change.

In Paraguay, climate scenarios were incorporated in the Bahia Negra Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation Plan. In Mozambique, a ‘wetlands and climate’ event on World Wetlands Day raised awareness on climate change and the importance of wetlands in the Marromeu complex.
