The Climate Master Plan including illustrations of the expected consequences as flood prone areas, storm surge and permanent flooded areas in the future, can improve the awareness of the climate change situation, independent of the climate change is caused by human activities, natural reasons or a combination.
The measures to be used for mitigation and adaptation can be in conflict or support both purposes in synergy. As an example the mitigation goes for very compact cities with high storage buildings and a minimum of transport while adaptation goes for open green cities with a lot of space to store or infiltrate storm water and to avoid heat-islands.
The presentation focus on methods and examples of screening of future flooding in urban areas and shows a catalogue for measures to adapt climate changes (rain, rising sea level, temperature, wind, sun etc.) including expected positive mitigation effects or conflicts. The Climate Master Plan, the climate change consequences in urban areas, adaptation measures catalogue and graphic presentation for improved awareness and decision tool will be illustrated by examples from Copenhagen Municipality and the huge infrastructure project Metro Cityringen in Copenhagen, including videos of the storm water flow in the streets, parks, railways etc. during heavy storms.
