As the second lowest lying country in Europe, Denmark is undeniably going to be affected by the changing climate. Particularly the instability associated with excessive water and unpredictable weather patterns poses a significant threat. As water has no regard for municipal boundaries, the holistic solutions required to deal with this issue needs to be interdisciplinary and cross-organizational in nature.

In response to this common threat the Central Denmark Region has taken on the role of facilitating the climate change adaptation project Coast to Coast Climate Challenge (C2C CC) to safeguard Danish valuables from devastating water incidents caused by climate change. One of the C2C CC goals is thus to build the municipal authorities´ capacity and enable them to develop and implement climate adaptation plans in their respective areas. The project covers a large territorial area and involves 15 municipalities from the Central Denmark Region and 3 from the North Denmark Region.

The objective

The project is lead by the Central Denmark Region, which in close collaboration with the project's 31 partners and 25 supportive partners will work to create a climate resilient region by:

  • formulating a joint long-term strategy among local stakeholders,
  • implementing climate adaptation plans in the municipalities as the necessary analyses and activities have been coordinated, and by
  • identifying and improving resources and capacities among citizens and municipalities as well as among utilities and companies in water trading.
