Knowledge dossiers on the sectors

The National Climate Adaptation Strategy has elaborated how climate change will impact ten different sectors. These ten sectors are listed below. Clicking on a sector will tell you the consequences of climate change that are or will be affecting that sector. The pages relating to the sectors of Water Management, Energy, and IT/Telecom still need to be finalised. However, for each sector, a conceptual diagram is provided outlining the impact.

The knowledge dossiers on the sectors are only available in Dutch.
