It is known that our climate is changing, but what is the exact impact on local and regional scale? With complex models we can create climate scenarios so we know how the climate will change in the Netherlands and how we can prepare ourselves. The Netherlands will face extreme precipitation, longer periods of droughts, changing wind directions and sea level rise.
The research programme Knowledge for Climate tried to decrease uncertainty in climate scenarios to get a better picture of the impact of climate change in the Netherlands. Besides that Knowledge for Climate created Climate Services that provide information on climate change and impacts for professionals and a broader audience..
