The specific local and regional impacts of climate change at the Baltic sea coast have not yet been sufficiently explored. Despite this uncertainty, first climate adaptation measures have already been implemented. This implies that climate change perceptions and attitudes towards climate adaptation measures are critical in determining local actions, their main focus, and the way in which new challenges and measures are approached.

This has led to different attitudes towards a) climate change adaptation and b) the way in which local communities and industries shape their climate change adaptation measures. While there are a lot of similarities, Doris Knoblauch and Dr. Nico Stelljes, both Fellows at the Ecologic Institute suggest in their article...Read more
