In a collaborative project, the universities of Koblenz, Bingen and Geisenheim are developing a framework concept for local climate adaptation in the Upper Middle Rhine Valley World Heritage. The project identifies climate change in the world heritage area, and describes the current state of knowledge and the developments to be expected from global trends and existing spatial conditions. Furthermore, the project outlines possible prevention measures as well as possibilities to avoid and mitigate negative impacts of climate changes on a local level.

The project’s aim is to set up a local and inter-municipal cooperation and to turn it into concerted efforts to adapt to climate change in viticulture using the example of the Rheingau. Within the network, effective and sustainable concepts for climate adaptation in viticulture are being developed and tailored to specific user groups. With regard to the model character of the project, the resulting approaches can be adapted to other agricultural systems such as areas used for fruit and vegetable growing.
