Flanders climate data platform - bundling all information in a single portal

  • How will the climate change in my municipality?
  • What information is available for raising citizen awareness on climate change?
  • Which areas are most vulnerable to flooding?
  • Where should we (dis)approve requests for permits for building new settlements?
Description

The Flanders climate information portal bundles current and future projections of primary climate indicators (temperature, precipitation, evaporation and wind), climate effects (heat, flood, rising sea levels, drought) and vulnerabilities (for people and buildings). Local authorities can use it to look for the specific climate change impact on their territory. Information is provided in the form of interactive maps, infographics, graphs and text and is available at different scales. Comparison of local indicators with average in Flanders is also possible.

Wageningen University & Research developed the Flanders climate portal in cooperation with:Flanders Environment Agency and KU Leuven
