About REGKLAM/Project

Safeguard quality of life – seize economic opportunities

REGKLAM collaborates with partners from the region to develop an integrated regional climate adaption programme that focuses on practical solutions

REGKLAM initiates and supervises the implementation of the initial adaption measures, which serve as role models

REGKLAM expands and consolidates a regional network of actors.

REGKLAM’s activities are guided by the slogan “Safeguard quality of life – seize economic opportunities”. Close collaboration between scientists and practitioners should ensure that the risks and opportunities of climate change in the Dresden region are identified at an early stage. The implementation of concrete adaption measures will secure and improve current living conditions in the region as well as its economic competitiveness.

Project structure

The work of REGKLAM covers a wide range of topics, which are all reflected in the main product of the project: the integrated regional climate adaption programme.

Research and development in REGKLAM are organised into four modules:

Module 1 develops the main product, the integrated regional climate adaption programme. This is subdivided into strategic topics such as “water balance and water management”, and jointly developed by representatives of the local administration, business and politics. Strategies for the transfer of data and insights gained on climate change, its repercussions and potential adaption measures are also developed in the module.

Module 2 investigates the theoretical basis behind the development of various forms of adaption. Regionalised scenarios describe the changing climate, economy and society while taking account of global effects as well as local changes specific to the Dresden region. Integrated scenarios bring together the individual changes into complex frameworks for the development and evaluation of alternative forms of adaption.

Module 3 evolves concrete adaption strategies in exemplary fields of action such as

  • urban structures
  • water systems
  • land use.

These strategies are also designed to take account of production conditions in trade and industry as well as the sectors environment and health.

In Module 4 the scientific work of the project is coordinated and support given to the collaboration of regional actors, for example by the organisation of internal project meetings and working groups as well as information events for the region.
