Look beyond the lifetime of your plan by understanding your climate risks

Keep your future adaptation options open by developing an understanding of changing climate risks over the long-term (100+ years) and incorporating this knowledge into the spatial planning process. Remember to address how adaptation of existing land-use in vulnerable locations can be managed in the longer-term.

  • European level: Encourage member states to develop ‘route maps’ for addressing climate risks through the next 100 years.
  • National level: Develop an understanding of climate risks over the long-term and incorporate this knowledge into the national spatial planning process.
  • Regional level: Encourage the development and land management sectors to adapt to long-term climate risks, inviting them to come up with innovative solutions.
  • Local level: Remember to take account of long-term climate impacts in development control decisions.
