Vera Engelmann is an Analyst at adelphi in the area of adaptation to climate change. Appropriate consideration of climate adaptation in land use decisions can reduce climate-related damages. Addressing climate risks in planning and prevention is therefore particularly important to her. In this context, she works with municipalities, social institutions and political actors to achieve climate adaptation not only on paper, but also in implementation.
"With my work at adelphi, I can actively shape new developments in the field of climate adaptation and at the same time not lose focus of the practical dimension. It is particularly exciting to learn about the current challenges in the implementation of adaptation measures by municipalities and social institutions and work together on solutions."
