What We Do

THE Concept

Worldwide, cities are struggling with the impacts from a changing climate. More extreme weather events will put urban areas in even harsher situations in the years to come. Many city governments have decided to take a proactive role and go ahead in planning for a resilient future for their citizens with climate-proof infrastructure and services. However, without specific data on the local context, city governments and their stakeholders struggle to precisely understand current and future challenges and can, therefore, not sufficiently inform the design of climate change adaptation and mitigation options. Climate Digital Cities embrace digital solutions to capture, manage, and utilize these essential data for improved understanding and more effective planning of climate-friendly cities.
