Dynamic Adaptation of Regional Planning and Development Processes to the Effects of Climate Change
The networking and research project dynaklim financed by the German Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) carries out multi-disciplinary research on how the Emscher-Lippe region can adapt to the effects of climate change in a dynamic and anticipating way in the future.
The main objects of research are the potential impacts on the regional water balance and the possible options to adapt for population, economy and the environment.
By setting up together with the region a sustainable network, a web-based knowledge management system and a region-spanning roadmap process on "Regional Adaptation", dynaklim assists the region to develop further into a future-based conurbation with a significantly improved ability to innovate and to adapt to climate change.
The networking and research project dynaklim is laid out for 5 years (2009 – 2014).
