Innovative Climate Stress Test Fryslân
This project aims to provide an insight into the potential effects of climate change, such as flooding and water shortages, but also heat stress. It aims to do so via the development of a climate stress test in order to substantiate and prioritise climate adaptation strategies and choices in Friesland and to stimulate participative area development. The objective was formulated in cooperation with the Friesian administrative agreement on the water chain (Dutch abbreviation: FBWK). A simulation model is developed to this end from which the maps and images are used in interactive policy-making and implementation of spatial adaptation.
- The municipality of Leeuwarden will be highlighted in 3D. Leeuwarden is the exemplary town for other (smaller) municipalities and it can compete with European cities that have not made as much progress in terms of mapping out climate impact.
- The maps, analyses and insights will be made accessible via the knowledge portal in the form of Story Maps (online stories consisting GIS maps, tekst, videos et cetera) in cooperation with the Climate Adaptation Services platform.
