Due to Denmark’s the low-lying characteristics, coastal areas are especially vulnerable to future effects of climate changes. The possible interaction between storm tides, storm water and rising groundwater increases the risk of flooding valuable regions. This requires a comprehensive approach to climate adaptation.
This webinar explorea our climate adaptation project to make the municipality of Dragør in the Øresund region climate resilient. A project that breaks down the barriers between coastal protection, nature conservation and the evolution of the changing cultural environment along the coast.
Discover how, instead of fighting the forces of nature, seawater and storm water, we are reintroducing the natural forces of nature into a new, rich and changing mosaic landscape. By gradually retracting the dikes and by sustaining the natural wave-breaking effect of the foreland, we create a dynamic, resilient landscape.
