The common goal of the project partners is to ensure the sustainability of land and water resources in the region under changing climatic conditions and to facilitate the strategic ability of adaptation of actors in the economy, politics and administration to the looming climate change.
Because regional and seasonal variability can differ widely, the proactive approach to new risks needs to be spatially differentiated and regionally coordinated. INKA BB operates region-based and company-based in three research regions, but also with a nation-wide focus that takes into account the whole area of regularisation. The three study areas include the Regional Planning Communities Spreewald-Lausitz and Uckermark-Barnim in terms of land and water management as well as the metropolis of Berlin for the processing/development of health and water supply problems.
Specifically the project INKA BB has the goal to enable entrepreneurs and business associations as well as decision makers in political administration
The adaptation strategies affect on the one hand INKA BB members, but also external partners in the region Berlin-Brandenburg. Therefore, the network understands itself as a growing organisation, which intends equally to initiate and actively design change and to act as a role model and partner that encourages learning and process change. To achieve this, the project aims to bundle the existing competencies of research, public administration, business associations and civil associations of the region.
