Floods, drought, heat stress: Severe weather disruption caused by global warming is unsettling people's lives around the globe. In Europe, the economic damage caused by flooding alone is forecast to rise to €20 billion a year during the 2020s. This number is expected grow to €46 billion by the 2050s and €98 billion by the 2080s.

However, the damage can be kept in check by taking stock of the risks and learning to prevent, reduce, and handle them. Our projects create climate resilience through means that are cost-effective and offer a range of added benefits.
