Climate Change Adaptation in Germany, Poland, and the Baltic States
This short movie features different perceptions, approaches, and solutions in regard to climate change adaptation in Germany, Poland, and the Baltic States. The footage was recorded during a workshop series in Szczecin, Gdansk, Klaipeda, and Riga from 24 to 28 October 2011. Scientists and local stakeholders from Germany, Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia comment on climate change and climate adaptation. Local problems and solutions in the different countries are described, and the advantages of an international exchange of experience are emphasized.
The workshops were organized by Ecologic Institute, Berlin, with the support of the Helmholtz Center Geesthacht. The effort was a cooperation of the RADOST project (Regional Adaptation Strategies for the German Baltic Sea Coast) with BALTADAPT and Circum Mare Balticum (Regional availability of climate knowledge in the Baltic Sea region).
