Form/Impact/Context

Form
In the Climate Adaptation Plan, we assess which challenges are the greatest and where, as a city, we can derive the greatest benefit by taking action now and in the coming years. At the same time, we are looking at how measures which are necessary to adapt Copenhagen to the future climate, can be of pleasure and benefit to the city here and now. So, climate adaptation in Copenhagen must not be designed to meet only the concrete challenges which the climate brings. Different measures can at the same time contribute to the creation of more recreational opportunities in the city, new jobs and a greener capital.

Impact
By including a green growth perspective in our thinking, it is our ambition that investments can be made in partnership with external investors. This can contribute to investments being not just an expense for the city but also a way to create growth and employment, as well as attracting new knowledge and new business to the city. And thereby contritute to a liveable city.
