'I am very enthusiastic about the tool and the idea behind it. It indicates what is happening in the world, who is vulnerable, and which coastal areas are at risk. And the good thing is that it makes use of open source data. It will be important  in creating awareness and in the way we think about possible solutions. I am a defender of this overview.'

Jan Peter Balkenende,
Former Prime Minister
of The Netherlands

'Climate adaptation and resilience require a joint effort from public and private partners, especially for communities and cities that are most vulnerable to climate change. I therefore appreciate leading Dutch company Van Oord for developing this Climate Risk Overview.'

Ahmed Aboutaleb,
Mayor of Rotterdam,
The Netherlands

The data comes from open sources and is mapped onto 10-kilometer stretches of the world’s coastlines. The various parameters can be filtered to narrow the visualisation down to a selected number of hotspots. Besides the hotspots, the tool also highlights how many people are exposed to flooding owing to sea-level rise, for example. 

How it works

The Climate Risk Overview is meant to be a conversation starter for governments, investors and society about what action needs to be taken and where. It is a tool for learning and sharing information. Above all, we hope it will persuade you to contact us to find out more and discuss how we can help support the hotspots identified.

'Van Oord’s Climate Risk Overview is an example of the invaluable role of the private sector and will be essential to broadening our understanding of climate risk and opportunities. GCA will continue to collaborate with partners across sectors that are equally committed to strengthening our climate resilience.'

Patrick Verkooijen,
CEO of the Global Center on Adaptation


It’s a free tool that we can all use to zoom in on the most vulnerable coastlines. It allows us to identify areas most at risk and take action. The Climate Risk Overview is a visualisation: a map that shows key parameters, including population, flood exposure, elevation, coastal erosion, and ecology.
