Climate Adaptation Summit 2021

Our planet is getting warmer, which has a growing impact on our societies and economies. We need to adapt to a new, more extreme climate.

Nederland, Groet / Petten januari 2018 De Hondsbossche Zeewering tussen Groet en Petten. Deze dijk is versterkt met 35 miljoen kubieke meter zand nadat de dijk als een van de zwakke schakels in de kustverdediging werd aangemerkt. De oorspronkelijke dijk is nagenoeg verdwenen onder opgespoten zand. The dyke between Groet and Petten, Netherlands. Identified as a so-called weak link in the low-lying countryâs defense against rising sealevels, the Dutch took to widening, raising and strengthening the original dyke with some 35 million cubic meters of sand, sucked up from the seabed of the North Sea. Thatâs the equivalent of 400 soccer pitches. Photo: Bas Beentjes / De Beeldunie
