SGI presents report on tools for considering soil movements in a climate change
A recent report by SGI, The Swedish Geotechnical Institute, presents tools and models that can be used concerning soil movements. Tools from several countries are presented briefly together with a more comprehensive tool.
SGI has, on behalf of the Centre for Climate Science and Policy Research (CSPR) in Sweden, attended “Baltic Climate”, a project funded by the EU Baltic Sea Region Programme 2007-2013 and it´s partners.
SGI:s work is presented in the report “Baltic Challenges and Chances for local and regional development generated by Climate Change - Tools for soil movements (landslides and erosion)”. The results in this report can be used as a complement to The Baltic Climate Toolkit for spatial planning on a regional, local and detailed level.
The main purpose of the general toolkit section is to highlight the importance of climate change mitigation and adaptation aspects in spatial planning. http://www.toolkit.balticclimate.org
There is also a more comprehensive tool used by SGI, and examples are given in the report. The presented tools are intended to give information for policy makers, spatial-planners and business people that there are methods that can be used to consider soil movements like landslides and erosion for spatial-planning, and for measures in already built areas.
The actual work with the toolkit, and the decision on which tool or combination of tools to use for the actual site, is intended to be done by experts in the geotechnical field.
