Abstract [en]

The Swedish Geotechnical Institute (SGI) has developed a model to be used as a basis for planning long-term sustainable solutions considering the risks for erosion, flooding, landslides and debris flows, regarding the climate of both toady and tomorrow. This planning and decision making model is based on an integrated assessment of both climatic conditions and technical, environmental and socio-economic conditions, including geotechnical risks. The model can be used as a basis for spatial planning, planning of adaptation measures for existing and new urban areas, coastal areas, and ski resort areas, as well as planning of infrastructure and land improvement measures. The model takes into account national, regional and local conditions. Thus the model can be used for the adaptation of the society to climate change and to manage the risks of natural disasters due to climate change for both the existing built-up areas and new development areas, including its associated infrastructure. Prerequisites for natural disasters, specifically erosion, landslides, debris flows and flooding, are inventoried by describing the natural topographical, geotechnical and hydrological conditions and the future climate change. Impact on humans, property and nature of potential natural hazards is identified and weighed together with the prerequisites of climate change. Optional measures are recognized and valued from an economic and environmental point of view. This provides a transparent basis for decisions in the planning or adaptation needs for existing development.
