International developments

Ook op internationaal (ISO) niveau zijn ontwikkelingen gaande op het gebied van klimaatadaptatie. Binnen ISO/TC 268 ‘Sustainable cities and communities' en ISO/TC 207/SC 7 'Greenhouse gas management and related activities' worden verschillende normen ontwikkeld. Voorbeelden zijn een norm over 'Vulnerability Assessment' en 'Indicators for Resilient Cities'. NEN is in beide TC’s vertegenwoordigd.

ISO/TC 207/SC 7 'Greenhouse gas management and related activities'

Binnen ISO/TC 207/SC 7 'Greenhouse gas management and related activities' is een aantal normen in ontwikkeling op het gebied van klimaatadaptatie. Bekijk hier meer informatie over het SC 7 werkprogramma >>

ISO/TC 268 ‘Sustainable cities and communities'

ISO/TC 268 ‘Sustainable cities and communities' ontwikkelt normen om steden duurzamer te maken. Bekijk hier meer informatie over het werkprogramma >>

Taskforce climate adaptation

In ISO a taskforce is working also on adaptation to climate change. The objective of this taskforce is to coordinate all initiatives for standardization in the field of climate change adaptation, this is carried out in close cooperation with CEN/CENELEC.

De rol van normalisatie

Normalisatie is een handige tool om klimaatdata op een eenduidige manier vast te leggen en om op een makkelijke manier gegevens daarover te kunnen uitwisselen. Met normalisatie voorkom je ook dat mensen steeds opnieuw het wiel gaan uitvinden.

European developments

Mandated project ‘Adaptation to Climate Change’

Buildings and infrastructure (e.g. railroads, pylons, telecom towers) are priority sectors in the EU strategy on adaption to climate change. It is if key importance that the European standards that define the design and operation of these sectors take climate change into account.

In a mandated project commissioned by the EC to CEN/CENELEC (the European organization for standardization), and led by NEN, an inventory has been made of relevant European standards. Following this inventory, 13 standards will be revised to improve the resilience to the adverse effects of climate change. Read more >>

Copernicus project

Copernicus Climate Change Services (C3S), a research programme of the European Union, develops projections of the future climate. NEN is currently investigating for C3S which climate information is needed by designers of standards for infrastructures. A broad range of stakeholders has been consulted, with a focus on designers of infrastructures for energy and transport, and buildings. The ultimate goal of the project is that in the future these infrastructures will be resilient to the effects of a changing climate, such as rain, storms, extreme droughts and floods. Read more >>


RESIN-project ‘Climate Resilient Cities and Infrastructures’

RESIN is a large programma financed by the European Commission. The objective of the project is to make European cities and vital infrastructures resilient to climate change. A special point of attention is the standardization of the procedures for determination of vulnerability of buildings, streets and squares and of possible adaption measures, as well as procedures to measure the effectiveness of measures taken. NEN has an important role in the (determination of) standardization activities. Read more. >>



International developments

Also at a global international level (ISO), developments are going on in the field of adaption to climate change. Within ISO/TC 268 'Sustainable cities and communities' and ISO/TC 207/SC 7 'Greenhouse gas management and related activities' different standards are being developed. Examples are a standard for 'Vulnerability Assessment' and 'Indicators for Resilient Cities'. NEN participates in both TC's. Read more >>





National developments

City Deal voor klimaatbestendige steden

Op nationaal gebied heeft NEN aansluiting gezocht bij de ‘City Deal voor klimaatbestendige steden’. Het is een initiatief van het ministerie van Infrastructuur en Milieu. Een aantal publieke partijen, zoals gemeenten en waterschappen en zeven (semi-)private partijen, waaronder Heijmans, Netherlands Water Partnership en Rotterdam Centre for Resilient Delta Cities doen hieraan mee. Met de City Deal willen de partijen de komende vier jaar een praktijkleeromgeving en kraamkamer voor innovatie zijn. Lees meer >>
