Climate changes - what can we do?

The climate will change significantly in the future. What does this mean for us and what can we do in Denmark to adapt? DHI explains in a new film which focuses on climate change in Denmark and worldwide. The film shows the impact of climate change on our cities, rural areas, our seas and coasts, and also suggests what we can do to adapt.

On 25 October 2014, the Danish Ministry of Environment published a report on the effects of climate change in Denmark and what we can expect it to mean for Denmark in the future.

Two days later, for the week starting 27 October – 2 November, the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) held its 40th session in Copenhagen. The panel discussed the consequences of climate change and prepared a report which will form the basis for global decisions on the reduction of C02 emissions and the adaptation to the changing climate.

We have years of experience in helping clients mitigate the impacts of climate change—but at DHI, we take things one step further. We want citizens and potential water professionals of the future to be aware of the consequences of climate change so that they can take immediate actions to minimise its impact. In Denmark, climate change will primarily affect us through water. With our unparalleled experience, we will contribute to the climate change debate with a broad dissemination of knowledge about climate and water.

Together with experts in the climate and water industry, we made a film that explains what climate change means and what you can do nationally and globally. Jens Hesselbjerg, Research Director, Danish Meteorological Institute (DMI), Ida Auken, current Member of Parliament and former Minister of Environment and Ole Mark, Head of Research and Development, DHI, feature in the film.
