In the towns alongside the watercourses of Kolindsund and Grenaa, climate change have major implications – not least in relation to the areas used for agricultural production and in the meadow areas along the river basins. Taking into account the present land use, future climate changes (more precipitation, greater quantities of water in catchments, rising groundwater, rising water level in Kattegat and – possibly – salt water intrusion), as well as cost-benefit and societal analyses, a number of realistic CCA scenarios will be analysed to provide a robust and valid basis for political decision-making. This action is primarily linked to developing tools within the whole hydrological circle.
