Norddeutsches Küsten- und Klimabüro
The “Coastal and Climate Office for Northern Germany” makes results from coastal and climate research available for Northern Germany and makes them practicably applicable. For this purpose, we are available to the Northern German public as a long-term contact at Hereon. We provide, for example, overview presentations, individual consultations and comprehensibly prepared, decision-relevant information. We use our overall understanding of coastal systems in transition to raise public awareness of (climate) change-related opportunities and risks. This enables decision makers to develop options for sustainable coastal development on a scientific basis. Established formats for informed interaction with decision-makers and the public include regional assessment reports, monitoring web tools and comprehensible summaries of complex relationships. Overall, our work thus contributes to sustainable coastal development. The department contributes to activities in the focal regions of coasts and climate.
