Northern Buildings in Changing Climate

Stregnthening the capacity for climate change adaption, and resource sufficiency in NPA communities

Due to climate change, the shifts between cold and mild during winter will become more frequent, winds will most likely become stronger and flawy, and the rainfall will increase. In addition, air humidity will increase. The combination of increased wind and rain may cause extra exposure of moisture/humidity to buildings.

Our objectives

The overall objective of the project is to provide recommendations and guidelines for sustainable climate change adaptation for existing and future buildings located in different climatical zones in the arctic and subarctic areas.
