About This is the final report (eindrapport) of the national Knowledge for Climate (KfC) research program. The program was set up in 2007 to explore the consequences of climate change for the Netherlands and how they should be managed. To that end, an independent foundation was established with the objective of “promoting evidence-based and practice- driven knowledge about climate in the public interest, including making that knowledge available to the public. The foundation has achieved that objective, together with stakeholders, by organizing and funding research and encouraging the processes of knowledge dissemination and application. Follow-up foundations are: Delta Alliance International, Climate Adaptation Services, Waterbuffer Foundation. The program did not aim to influence regional and local authorities directly. It provided the knowledge needed to improve decision-making regarding long term spatial planning investments. The program provided the tools – for example the Climate Adaptation Atlas – so that local and regional authorities can get to work on adaptation.
