The RADOST project ("Regional Adaptation Strategies for the German Baltic Sea Coast") has intensely dealt with climate change, its consequences, and adaptation possibilities for the Baltic Sea coast over the last four and a half years. The final conference took place in the Rostock City Hall from 1 to 2 April 2014, before the project ends this year.
During the conference, research results and experiences were presented to a broader audience. Also, experts from science and practice discussed the challenges of climate change and possible adaptation measures.
A main question was which of the impulses generated through RADOST can be further developed in the region. In parallel to the RADOST focal themes, the following topics will be emphasized:
- Coastal protection,
- Tourism and beach management,
- Water management and agriculture,
- Harbours and maritime business,
- Nature protection and uses,
- Renewable energy
