    Ramboll Environ developed an innovative, sustainable and economically beneficial approach to addressing the impact of metal contamination on river sediments in the River Nent in Cumbria.

  • Climate change adaptation technologies for water: a practitioner’s guide to adaptation technologies for increased water sector resilience

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Friday, August 11, 2017
    Objective: 

    This guide aims to help address this challenge by providing the missing identification and evaluation assistance that those looking for adaptation solutions initially face. More specifically, it focuses on adaptation technologies for building resilience to climate change induced hazards in the water sector.

  • Hydrological Zoning

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Friday, August 25, 2017
    Objective: 
    Sectors: 

    Hydrological zoning (or simply zoning) is an approach to divide land into different zones based on their hydrological properties. Typically, each type of zone has different land use and development regulations linked to it. This land and water management method aims to protect local water sources from risks of over-abstraction, land salinization, groundwater pollution and waterlogging by managing land use activities based on the assigned hydrological zones.  For example, zones with a high groundwater table, large amounts of surface water (e.g.

  • South–South cooperation and triangular cooperation on technologies for adaptation in the water and agriculture sectors

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Wednesday, June 28, 2017
    Objective: 

    Adapting water management and agricultural practices to climate variability is essential and requires integrated responses. This brief explores how countries can harness south-south and triangular cooperation for accelerating the exchange of adaptation technologies, knowledge and practices in the water and agriculture sectors. It also highlights challenges, best practices, lessons learned, and the roles of stakeholders in replicating and transferring such technologies.

  • Climate Risk and Adaptation in the Electric Power Sector

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Saturday, January 7, 2012
    Objective: 

    This report aims to highlight and raise awareness about the exposure and vulnerability of the energy sector to climate change. It identifies adaptation options available to each source of energy generation as well as for the distribution and end use of electrical energy. The report focuses on electric power generation, its transmission, and its distribution. A second publication, "Guidelines for Climate Proofing Investments in the Electric Power Sector", provides a systematic project-level approach for assessing climate risk and climate-proofing investments in the sector.
