Industrial area planners and developers and construction site managers are trained to take climate risks systematically into account in planning and decision-making processes, including at an early stage of site selection and development. This should also be the case for mandatory environmental assessments. The project advises industrial authorities, development agencies for industrial areas and industrial area administrators on how climate risks can be identified and integrated into planning, decision-making and construction projects.

Awareness of this issue must be mainstreamed, especially among stakeholders in the private sector and federal institutions. This will result in industries being situated in locations that are exposed to fewer climate risks, while ensuring that existing industrial areas are retrofitted accordingly. Operators of vulnerable industrial areas will be able to prepare for disasters.

The project works in the following four areas:

  • Developing methodologies for conducting risk analysis and for integrating the respective results into the planning and decision making.
  • Raising awareness for climate-risks and developing capacities for planning and taking decisions accordingly.
  • Supporting the mainstreaming of climate change policies within the industry sector and in up-scaling the lessons learnt.
  • Supporting the planning and development of climate-resilient industrial areas.
