Climate adaption solutions for the water sector in the German-Danish border area
May 08, 2023
More than 60 participants met in Kolding, Denmark, from March 23 to 24 for the final conference of the INTERREG-Project NEPTUN. In the frame of this project, more than 40 partners elaborated 15 specific climate adaption solutions for the water sector.
Practical solutions for urgent challenges
The two-day conference also concluded with excursions to successfully implemented climate adaptation measures in the Brændkjær district of Kolding and in Middelfart. Here, rainwater is temporarily stored on site in troughs and basins, which not only relieves the burden on the sewage system but also enhances the neighbourhood through newly designed green spaces and parks.
The network of more than 40 actors, including the Christian-Albrechts-University of Kiel, the University of Southern Denmark as well as the Danish environmental cluster CLEAN and municipalities from Denmark and Germany, has raised society’s awareness of the consequences of climate change in various event formats on both sides of the border. Fifteen concrete solutions for climate adaptation in the water sector have been developed and presented. Following the successful conclusion of the NEPTUN project, discussions are underway on a joint follow-up application that focuses more strongly on concepts for water-sensitive urban development. Because only together are we strong enough to develop innovative climate adaptation solutions.
Excursions to watch successfully implemented solutions
