Climate change and related exceptional weather conditions are here to stay. Whether it concerns droughts, floods or any of the other climate extremes, the world urgently needs to adapt to ‘the new normal’.

There are three main components to this track: describing and quantifying spatiotemporal climate risks; developing fit-for-purpose adaptation pathways and associated measures and defining appropriate approaches in governance, engineering and information.

Depending on your interest, you might focus on cities, river basins, coastal or dryland areas, that all come with their own particular climate challenges. Depending which profile you choose, amongst a wide range of other topics, you will learn about water sensitive cities and sustainable urban drainage; climate adaptation politics, water conflicts and financing; drought and flood management; artificial intelligence and decisions support systems or about sea level rise and coastal adaptation in rapidly urbanizing deltas.
