This report is one of the six sub-reports of the "Climate Impact and Risk Analysis 2021 for Germany", which aims to provide an essential basis for the further development of adaptation in Germany. To this end, both future climate risks and opportunities for adaptation were examined in a structured manner according to climate impacts and fields of action. This sub-report deals with the thematic cluster “Infrastructure” which is composed of the fields of action "Housing, construction", "Energy industry" and "Transport, transport infrastructure".
For each field of action, selected climate impacts are analyzed, whereby the current state of knowledge and the development up to the middle and the end of the 21st century are discussed. In addition, the results of the climate risk assessment are presented for each climate impact. Subsequently, adaptation options for certain climate impacts are discussed and possible challenges regarding adaptation are identified. These sections are complemented by an assessment of the adaptation capacity as well as brief explanations of the need for action. Finally, all results are summarized in tabular overviews for each field of action.
All six sub-reports are linked from the Summary.
