This collaborative project aimed to develop and implement climate change adaptation strategies in the Berlin-Brandenburg region in a broad-based and emblematic manner. Together with a variety of practitioners (business, public administration, the general public), twelve research institutions worked on 24 sub-projects. The IRS was involved in sub-project 19 and thus contributed to ‘Water Management’ as one of the collaborative project’s action fields. Within this sub-project, the IRS was responsible for the social scientific research component. ‘Fredersdorfer Mühlenfließ’ was chosen as the study area. The goal was to develop proposals for an institutional adaptation of water management to the impacts of climate change in small catchment areas and to assess their applicability through a participatory process.
