10. Climate adaption

UN SDGs - targets Local actions
Decrease the direct economic losses caused by disasters
We will prepare emergency response plans for handling natural disasters to reduce the scope of any losses.
Strengthen resilience and adaptive capacity to climate-related hazards and natural disasters
In our planning, going forward, we must consider the consequences of climate change, e.g., we must avoid building on permafrost and in areas at risk of storm surges.
We will upgrade our sewer system to enable it to handle larger stormwater volumes in the future, and we will upgrade ditches to handle meltwater and surface water.
Improve education and human and institutional capacity on climate change mitigation
Mapping the risk of flooding and erosion makes up a key foundation for dealing with climate change in our future planning.
Furthermore, we will contribute to supporting research and knowledge sharing internationally, e.g., through the new Icefjord Centre.
