Climate adaptation and the soil – water system

This model book on climate adaptation and the soil-water system is a compilation of inspiring and successful climate adaptation projects in rural areas. It shows how the soil-water system can be utilised to prevent waterlogging and drought at the local and regional levels.

The interactive document zooms in on six types of measures:

  • Carbon farming;
  • Alternative soil cultivation;
  • Adaptation of crops and land use;
  • Water buffering in the soil;
  • Brook regulation;
  • Climate buffers.

The book presents several examples of each type of measure. Those who are planning on implementing one of these types of measures can use the examples as a source of inspiration. In addition, municipalities can use the information from these examples in the purview of their policymaking or decision-making.
