Somechallenges from a Norwegian/Northern European perspective


Melting of the Arctic ice

  • Serious damage to the Arctic ecosystem

  • Opens up for utilization of natural resources

  • New shipping routes

2006-min

2007-min

2008 pr. 3/9


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

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

Norwegian to the atmosphere from human activitiesClimateAdaptation 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

Et trygt og robust samfunn - der alle tar ansvar


Activities to the atmosphere from human 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)
