Melting of the Arctic ice

  • Serious damage to the Arctic ecosystem
  • Opens up for utilization of natural resources
  • New shipping routes

Higher frequency of landslides and floods

New areas exposed

More unpredictible

Urban floods and insufficient drainage

Heavier rain will cause damage to buildings

More frequent and heavier precipitation - consequences

Rising sealevel

Report first publishedOctober 2008

Shows expectedsealevels 2050 and 2100 for all municipalitiesalong the coast

Expectedsealevelvariesaccording to land rise, oceancurrents, and oceantemperature

Main challenge: How to usethisknowledge?

ocean acidification

The ocean absorbs approximately one-fourth of the CO2 added to the atmosphere from human activities

  • Decreases the ability of many marine organisms to build their shells and skeletal structure
  • We don’t yet know the full impact for fisheries and coastal sector

Change in sea surface pH caused by anthropogenic CO2 between the 1700s and the 1990s (Wikipedia)

NorwegianClimateAdaptation Programme

  • Established 2007
  • Interministerialcommittee
    • Headed by MinistryoftheEnvironment
    • Secretariat: Directorate for CivilProtection and Emergency Planning (links DRR and CCA)
  • No changes in responsbilities – municipality/countylevels
  • Provideknowledge, exchange of experiences, competencebuilding

Activities

  • Developedcourse in climatechangeadaptation for development/ emergencyplanners & decision-makers at locallevel
  • Research (funding / steeringgroups)
  • ’FutureCities’ project – 13 largestmunicipalities (covers 50 per cent of total population)
  • WebsitelaunchedMarch 2009
  • Handbook/planningtools to be developed by summer 2010
