Sustainable North Sea Region
For the North Sea Region, the effects of climate change – more damaging storms, floods and drought – are hard to predict. Nevertheless, disruption is almost certain.
With so many low-lying areas, a rise in sea level, for example, could cripple the region’s economy and put many lives at risk. Some of our projects seek to bolster flood defences while others seek alternative approaches to climate change adaptation and mitigation of inevitable events.
In addition to climate change risk management, we also take a long-term perspective to preserving the natural environment: Our projects also help to protect plant and animal species and reduce the high levels of pollutants and metal toxins in the North Sea.
Coordinated, cross-border action is the only efficient way to deal with climate change and to preserve the natural world.
