This action focuses on sustainable Climate Change Adaption (CCA) through a holistic concept, involving approaches that brings together the environment, society and the economy.

The farming sector is important because of its agricultural procuction, while, at the same time, it manages areas that are important for the CCA of towns and cities.

It is important to counteract the decline in residential areas and accommodate the potential for continued production opportunities in farming and for growth in general.

Solutions must be implemented in collaboration between local farmers, technical water experts, and, if required, water utilities, that have knowledge of and experience with precipitation, water movement in the soil, drainage systems, hydraulics, watercourses, the use of the area and choice of crops.

This action is primarily linked to governance and innovation within all aspects of the hydrological cycle apart from sea & fjords.
