The focal area of adaptation to climate change includes technologies and innovative infrastructures that reduce vulnerability and increase resilience to the effects of climate change and associated climate extremes. Relevant areas are, for example, coastal protection and land use and the handling of hazardous weather events and services for the practice-oriented use of climate data and climate information (climate services).
