About the ClimateChangePost

The ClimateChangePost is based in The Netherlands and founded by Dr. Wilfried ten Brinke, an expert with 30 years of experience in water and climate change issues in The Netherlands and abroad. 

The ClimateChangePost brings you the latest news on climate change and adaptation. The articles are based on the latest results in a large number of scientific journals (see list below), reports by the IPCC, the European Environment Agency and many more. The focus is especially on Europe, but the latest news on climate change in several sources world-wide is also presented.

The ClimateChangePost is responsive for your smartphone as well, so you can easily read our articles wherever and whenever you feel like it.

About the initiative 'Europe in a changing climate'

Part of the ClimateChangePost is the initiative ‘Europe in a changing climate’. This initiative presents the search for Europe’s vulnerabilities, the impact of the projected climate change and the consequences for all the countries of Europe and for all sectors involved, based on a thorough literature research. The spot on the horizon is the second half of this century. The search shows risks and opportunities, consequences of both climate change and non-sustainable use of land and water resources, and strategies to adapt to the consequences of climate change. 

For each European country the results of this search are presented for all relevant themes. Just click on the map of Europe and then select the theme you're interested in. The text on the screen is the summary of a large number of publications over the last years; the most recent ones are the ones that have been summarized in the articles in the ClimateChangePost.  

This website will never be finished, simply because new insights in climate change, vulnerabilities and adaptation strategies will keep on being published in assessment reports, scientific papers and other media. These new insights will be added to this website in the course of time. Also, links will be added to related websites, youtube videos and other presentations in the media that shed more light on the possible impacts of climate change.

The website aims to help those who are searching for a quick, but well-substantiated summary of the impact of climate change in their country or their field of interest. The site shows that, in terms of adaptation strategies, a lot can be learned from studies and assessments in different countries. Besides, the site may be interesting for companies, authorities and research organisations to present themselves to readers in a European-wide audience looking for information in their field of action.
