It is extremely important for them to know the effects of climate change in terms of both the scope and the long-term consequences. The long-term implications are particularly unclear. Deltares has the latest knowledge in the field of climate adaptation and dealing with uncertainties. This is a field that is developing rapidly at the international level and applications always have to be tailored to the individual circumstances. In 2015 we will be using our knowledge more often on projects in other countries. We also will learn a lot ourselves from these projects, particularly in terms of how we can make the complex adaptation methods, delta scenarios, adaptation paths and tipping points more practical to use.
We will extend our activities abroad and be able to help more governments. As in Bangladesh, where we are developing sound plans for climate adaptation. We also expect the methods we develop to become more user-friendly.
