Knowledge Portal for Climate Adaptation
The Knowledge Portal for Climate Adaptation is the pre-eminent source of information for everyone engaged in climate adaptation in The Netherlands. It features practical guidance and tools, inspiring examples, knowledge syntheses, a library with reports, and the latest news. Additionally, the Climate Impact Atlas, which is ancillary to the portal, provides an open-access collection of interactive maps showing current and future climate risks, as well as guidance on the interpretation and use of the data through Story Maps.
The portal is updated continuously in close collaboration with users, knowledge institutes, and consultancies. And through the strong links with national policies and programmes on adaptation, the portal supports the implementation of the Delta Plan on Spatial Adaptation and the National Adaptation Strategy.

Exploring the role of the platform for monitoring and evaluation
Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) of adaptation efforts and results is an emerging theme in The Netherlands. More and more actors have started to formulate strategies and implement actions, and hence questions arise regarding their progress and effectiveness. Currently, the managers of the Knowledge Portal for Climate Adaptation explore the potential role of the platform to support knowledge exchange, capture lessons learned, and drive innovation in the field of M&E.
