Climate adaptation in Urban areas - CLIMCAP

Climate change is causing extreme weather conditions. These extremes also influence the weather in the city. The protagonists in this city climate are: heat(temperature), wind and water. Sanda Lenzholzer developed a course structure that was carried out in pilot courses in five participating countries. In all countries the pilot course structure received very good reviews from the participants.

Therefore and because of great interest from the professional field, Wageningen Academy will offer this course as part of their regular course programme in the future. The next course (in Dutch) is planned for the September 2019. You can also contact the programme manager for in company offers.

From the official website (Website CLIM CAP):
Even under the most optimistic greenhouse gas reduction scenario the on-going process of climate change cannot be stopped. These impacts create new hazards and vulnerabilities putting the citizens´ quality of life and health at risk, particularly for the growing number of the elderly. Applicable knowledge from science and practice is necessary for decision making, even though uncertainties remain. CLIM-CAP proposes to bridge this gap by developing a training qualification for climate change adaptation in urban areas.

The CLIM-CAP partners include the Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB) and Akademie der Ruhr-Universität gGmbH (AKA) from Germany, the Town and Country Planning Association (TCPA) from the UK, the Wageningen Academy (WBS) in the Netherlands, the Energiaklub Climate Policy Institute and Applied Communications (EK) in Hungary, and the Technical University of Catalonia (UPC) in Spain.
