Klimatanpassning.se contains information about the effects of climate change, descriptions of roles and responsibilities, material for inspiration and education such as games and films, and examples of how climate change adaptation can be integrated into the daily work of for example local administrations and businesses.
The Swedish version of the portal carries more information compared to the English version. On Klimatanpassning.se, Swedish version, you can also find tools for adaptation in a number of fields and aimed towards different target groups, news and a calendar.
The portal is a result of the cooperation between several Swedish governmental agencies, in collaboration with Sweden's municipalities and county councils. Every agency is responsible for their area of expertise and the combination gives a broad spectrum of information. At regular intervals a dialogue is held between the agencies to gradually develop the portal. A newsletter on climate change adaptation is also issued by the agencies four times a year.
Klimatanpassning.se is run by the Swedish National Knowledge Centre for Climate Change Adaptation.
Governmental agency network for climate change adaptation
The Swedish governmental agencies behind the portal have joined in a network to facilitate the national planning and implementation of climate change adaptation measures. The main purpose of the agency network is cooperation to increase society’s resilience against climate change. This is done by working to strengthen the capacity of the participating governmental agencies as well as society outside the network.
Each of the participating governmental agencies has responsibility for adaptation to climate change within their respective areas of expertise. By dedicating specific working groups to different climate effects the network is able to deliver common, joined-up services to the parts of society that are carrying out adaptation activities.
Swedish National Knowledge Centre for Climate Change Adaptation
The Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute (SMHI), is tasked to run the Swedish National Knowledge Centre for climate change adaptation, for which the portal operates as a tool for disseminating information. The centre collects, develops and shares research, information from authorities and learning exemples to facilitate sound decision making.
