Climate change involves extended periods of drought, as well as a higher frequency of extreme events with short periods of heavy rainfall leading to flooding. Such climate driven changes in water quantity greatly impact our landscape, damaging natural ecosystems and reducing agricultural food production. This will not only have impacts on landscape scale biodiveristy, both on land and in the water, but also on sustainable food production. In this project, ouw aim is to establish ways how climate robust landscapes can contribute to a sustainable integration of various land-uses to improve biodiversity as well as soil and water quality. 

With this research we will facilitate the transition towards a climate robust landscape
