Climate resilience solutions for the public and private sectors

Turn your climate adaptation plan into action

There are many ways to enhance climate resilience in communities, assets, and infrastructure – and not all of them involve building new structures. 

That is why, as well as designing and engineering structures and nature based solutions, we can deliver policies, strategies and software solutions – and other measures – that enhance resilience and meet your area’s wider needs. This means you can:

Avoid unforeseen costs

If you are going to protect assets and ensure business continuity, it is important to have a climate adaptation strategy – but that is just the start. How do you put your roadmap into action, and make those plans real in a way that delivers the best return on your investment? 
Selecting, designing, and implementing the right solution takes specialist expertise, and a trusted partner can help you make the right choices so every solution is fit for purpose, and avoids hidden costs and delays.

Win stakeholder buy in and meet broader regional needs

Beyond the nature of the solution itself, decisions about the exact location, function, materials, and design will be pivotal. They don’t just determine your project’s effectiveness in mitigating climate risk; they also define its ecological impact, development and operating costs, and – critically – stakeholder acceptance.

That is where our experience implementing climate resilience solutions worldwide, at both a local and wider scale, really makes the difference. 

We can handle an individual aspect of your programme – like conducting an environmental impact study or overseeing construction – or cover the whole project lifecycle, including continuous hazard monitoring or optimising maintenance. 

Either way, you can count on us to take the widest view and deliver the best possible outcome for you and your region.

Royal HaskoningDHV has delivered successful flood management, coastal protection, water resource management, and asset management solutions and consultancy all over the world.

    Climate resilience

    Climate change is putting people, assets, infrastructure, and business continuity at increasing risk. Impacts like flooding, drought, heatwaves, landslides and wind are taking a growing toll on communities and businesses. For private and public sector organisations, this presents a defining challenge: “How can we adapt to keep our communities, economies, assets and infrastructure running safely?”
