How do we consider climate change in the assessments?

Our assessments of NBI projects consider different climate scenarios using information about weather and climate trends from the EU Copernicus Climate Data Store. This allows us to understand how climate risks affect the financial performance of infrastructure projects. It also helps us understand how infrastructure projects affect climate resilience.  

For example, reforestation can help people adapt to climate change by protecting them from increasing floods and droughts. By using climate scenarios, we can show that these benefits can be even more pronounced under more extreme climate change predictions.
