Choice of scenario - what are we protecting us against? • High uncertainty - both regarding prognoses and technology • We have chosen to aim towards the upper estimates in the IPCC scenarios • Will only matter after about 50 years - until then the scenarios follow more or less the same path. • Continuous revision of the plan allows for adjustments.
Main challengesCloud burst Flooding from the sea
A green and blue city - adapted to afuture climate = more quality of life• Adaptation is not just a negative measure• We can increase the recreational area and create more quality of life for copenhageners• We can help make copenhageners more healthy• We can create synergy with other planning• We can increase biodiversity.
Harbour baths - a huge improvement of thequality of life
Areas for green growth and innovation • Technical solutions - eg. cleaning of run off from roads • Technical solutions with high design quality. • Adaption in the existing city - development and testing of methods in the existing city

Adaptation is a new precondition in urbandevelopment • Will influence the way we utilise and plan urban spaces • Will influence the use and development of recreative areas in the city • In the future we have to make sure that we can manage and control water when we develop the city, and we will actively use water as a ressource to improve the urban life
