National Climate Research The Netherlands
The National Climate Research has been created by the Dutch Government from a so called Economic Structure Enhancing Fund (FES). Its conducts its research activities in two parallel programs: the Climate changes Spatial Planning Programme, which enhances joint-learning between communities and people in practice within spatial planning, with the themes climate scenarios, mitigation, adaptation, integration and communication, and the Knowledge for Climate Research Programme, that develops knowledge and services, focusing on eight Hotspots, enabling the climate proofing of the Netherlands. The programmes are built around the principles of "Climate proofing", a combination of targeted, new "hard" infrastructural adaptation measures as well as mainstreaming climate change into other infrastructural developments, and risk management and coping strategies which rely on mainly the "soft" sectors and measures, like the bank/insurers, legislation schemes, governance and institutional transitions in spatial planning, and opportunities for technological, institutional and societal innovations. This research aims to generate internationally competitive scientific results.
