The Dutch online Natural Capital Atlas offers hundreds of maps that portray ecosystem services in the Netherlands. The Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment, initiator of the Atlas, wants to further develop the website with users. We guided a consultation process with municipalities and companies to identify their needs, and wishes. Results are a crystal clear list of directly implementable recommendations for accessibility, categorization, expanded data needs, interactivity and functionality.

We brought together 60 participants of Dutch municipalities, Waterboards and business to discuss climate adaptation in a working conference. What are the curent complexities in adapting our living environment to extremes in heat, drought and rainfall? These adaptations are often complex, multi stakeholder and multidisciplinary. How do we manage these effectively, including aspects such as finance?
The conference resulted in clear calls for action for various players in the decision chain, from national platforms to finance institutions, and are rolled out with support of the Dutch Ministery of Infrastructure and the Environment.
