adaptation strategy
Adaptation strategy
  • No specific adaptation strategy or policy plan  integrated in other policy areas
  • Sector specific vulnerability assessments (most common in water sector)
  • Adaptation policies most strongly developed in water sector (both planning and implementation)
the netherlands
The Netherlands
  • Around 50% of the country lies below sea level and it lies on the delta of three rivers (Rhine, Maas or Meuse and Schelde)
  • Lowest point: Zuidplaspolder – 7 m.
  • Highest point: Vaalserberg 322 m.
adaptation strategy continued
Adaptation strategy(continued)
  • Research dominates policy agenda in other sectors (e.g. spatial planning, agriculture, nature)
  • Costs of adaptation are largely unknown and not budgeted for
hurdles
Hurdles
  • Uncertainties of impacts of climate change
  • National policy versus local/regional implementation
  • Transboundary measures are sometimes needed
  • Climate change is only one of the influences on different policy areas
  • Mid-term focus of most policy areas versus long term impacts
  • The climate changes gradually
concluding remarks
Concluding remarks
  • An overall national adaptation strategy may not be needed
  • Hurdles in national adaptation strategies might be even bigger in an international strategy or instrument
  • Joint research and sharing experiences on methods and tools might be useful
