The "Past, Present and Future of Flooding in Leeds" poster aims at increasing awareness on flooding in Leeds . The poster uses historical flooding data, results from a workshop in Leeds on barriers and drivers, as well as artist drawings of future scenarios for Leeds.
Researchers from the BASE project explore various aspects of climate change in local cases across Europe. Many of the cases are about preparing for extreme events. The Finnish case is from the river Kalajoki. In Germany the Baltic coastal resort of Timmendorfer Strand has been studied and Jenny Tröltzsch of Ecologic Institute underlines the importance of local participation. The Portuguese cases include the area of Cascais that is being analysed by researchers from Lisbon university. Gil Penha-Lopes stresses the importance of health aspects.
This poster, put together by BASE project partners CzechGlobe and Deltares, was presented at the international conference 'Deltas in Times of Climate Change II: Opportunities for people, science, cities and business'.
This leaflet provides a brief overview of the BASE project in Portuguese language, including the project's goals, and the challenges for planning and implementing effective and sustainable climate adaptation in Europe. A map provides a visual overview of the locations and themes of the 20 BASE case study sites. Additional information on the project team, as well as ways for you to get involved in BASE project activities are also included.
