The project is transdisciplinary, which entails cross-border cooperation between practitioners and researchers from various disciplines. Through the use of workshops and focus groups, decision making support is developed for both practical and scientific results. The practical results will consist of a balanced assessment and report on how the climate adaptation concepts of attack, retreat and defense would affect the free-port area's sustainable development. The scientific results will touch upon conflicts of interest and conflicting objectives identified during the focus group work.
The results will contribute to decision making support for the City of Gothenburg´s, but also other cities´, strategies and plans for climate adaptation and identify conflicting objectives relating to climate adaptation.
The project began in the spring of 2010 and a first workshop, which focuses on ecological consequences of the different climate adaptation strategies, will be held in the autumn of 2010. The project will be completed in the autumn of 2011.
