Climate change adaptation

Extreme weather, droughts and floods are some examples of how climate change is already affecting our world. Future changes will have serious consequences, and climate change adaptation is essential for reducing society's vulnerability.

IVL conducts research and assignments to increase knowledge about the impact of climate change adaptation. By adapting communities and economies and making them more resilient to climate change, we can reduce the need for urgent and costly measures in the future and contribute to long-term sustainable development.

Climate change adaptation can also provide opportunities for innovation, economic growth and improved urban planning, which can benefit current and future generations. IVL offers expertise and research experience in climate change adaptation through strategic support and analyses to help our clients and partners make the right decisions and develop their operations and businesses.
