Technologies in the adaptation sectors

Click on one of the sectors to access the various related technologies:

Due to climate change, additional productivity losses are expected in regions that already struggle with infertile soil and unreliable rainfall patterns, resulting in food insecurity. Conservation agriculture is a promising method for adapting agriculture to climate change.

The following pages provide information on German providers of products and services in the various technology areas:

Drought- and salt-resistant plants
Efficient irrigation systems
Electronic control and monitoring
Soil cultivation concepts and consulting
Climate-tolerant livestock
Fodder production based on climate change induced change of raw materials
Implementation of innovative cultivation or land management methods
Sustainable fishing industry/aquacultures

Climate change has already caused significant changes in forests and woodlands worldwide, and this development is expected to continue and accelerate. When looking for adequate adaptation strategies, the long-term forest management cycles, ranging from less than 10 years up to more than 100 years in length, need to be taken into account. Adaptation in this context includes actions such as sustainable forest management, conservation and restoration of forests.

The following pages provide information on German providers of products and services in the various technology areas:

Climate-tolerant forestry consulting (e.g. agroforestry systems)

Meteorological metrology and climate simulation are of major importance for the development of climate adaptation strategies, as their global, regional or national projections provide a solid basis for decision-making and to gather information from. Climate monitoring techniques, reliable climate and weather data, and climate simulations and scenarios are therefore rather specific, but fundamental services German providers are offering.

The following pages provide information on German providers of products and services in the various technology areas:

Forest fire management
Wind, air pressure and precipitation meters
Weather surveillance radar systems and software
Calculation of climate scenarios

The development of resilient energy infrastructures is tackled by some of the most critical risks to the energy sector, such as extreme weather events, and other threats. Germany possesses strong ranges of goods and services in the resilient energy infrastructure sector. At the same time, developing countries face major challenges such as financing and qualification involved with the transfer of these comparatively complex services. The long-term effects of these solutions will pay off and produce substantial synergies and other benefits for the target countries.

The following pages provide information on German providers of products and services in the various technology areas:

Low water-tolerant thermal power plants
Energy saving technologies
Gale-tolerant high-voltage power lines

Climate change is projected to lead to major changes in water availability across the globe, with increasing water scarcity, droughts and a higher risk of severe floods. Again, developing countries are particularly vulnerable. Therefore, water management plays an increasingly important role in adaptation strategies.

The following pages provide information on German providers of products and services in the various technology areas:

Regeneratively powered desalination plants
Water Harvesting Technologies
Water recycling concepts and plants
Electronic monitoring of conduit systems to avoid leakages
Graywater recycling
Watershed planning
Flood retention basins
Fountain management (protection against flooding and contamination)
Water storage

The following pages provide information on German providers of products and services in the various technology areas:

Spatial planning with regard to water spreading areas
Extremely storm-resistant buildings

Infrastructure which enables the safe and reliable use of road, rail and air transport is particularly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. as it is designed for long operational lives. Incorporating climate change considerations into infrastructure planning and management is therefore a crucial factor.

The following pages provide information on German providers of products and services in the various technology areas:

Planning of railway lines, streets and airports
Building of railway lines, streets and airports
Extreme weather-tolerant harbor installations

Rising sea levels are predicted to cause flooding, coastal erosion and the loss of low-lying coastal systems. It will also increase the risk of storm surges and more frequent and severe urban flooding that may damage and destroy local infrastructure. Relevant up-to-date technologies can support good adaptation planning worldwide.

The following pages provide information on German providers of products and services in the various technology areas:

Planning of dikes, flood protection constructions, sluice and drainage technologies
Dike building, flood protection construction, sluice and drainage technology building

The following pages provide information on German providers of products and services in the various technology areas:

Datacenters with low cooling requirements
Gale-tolerant mobile communication base stations
Decentralized energy buffers

Adaptation to climate change will mean additional costs for the public and private sectors. However, assessing the costs and, especially, the benefits of adaptation is more complicated than for mitigation. Reinsurance reduces the risks to which individual insurance companies are exposed to in terms of climate change risks.

The following pages provide information on German providers of products and services in the various technology areas:

Reinsurance against climate change risks

This area involves consulting regarding establishment of local and national disaster relief forces, procurement of equipment, and training of disaster relief forces.

The following pages provide information on German providers of products and services in the various technology areas:

Public disaster prevention consulting

Climate change is predicted to generate new health risks and intensify current health problems. The demands of developing countries in this sector include coping with indirect effects such as diseases transmitted by insects, changes in water, food and air quality as well as health implications caused in the context of heat stress.

The following pages provide information on German providers of products and services in the various technology areas:

Land management reducing the reproduction of disease-carrying insects
Provision for quick heat stress treatment
Food supply seizure (incl. sustainable refrigeration supply solutions)
