Vulnerability and adaptation to climate change

Climate change is a reality that must now be taken into account in designing or rehabilitating every sensitive scheme, in evaluating water resources at a regional or local scale and in managing flood risks. Artelia has specialist teams able to assess the impact of climate change on various natural environments (coasts, rivers, lakes, wetlands, groundwater, etc.), propose adaptation strategies and accompany them with a pertinent economic analysis.
