Activities in the four project regions


"ReKIS kommunal" –Regional Climate Information System for Municipalities

ReKIS kommunal is an additional feature of the Regional Climate Information System ReKIS (, tailored to the needs of Saxon communities. The web application ReKIS serves for the provision, documentation, evaluation as well as interpretation of climate data and information for the federal states of Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt and Thuringia. On behalf of these federal states and in close cooperation with them, the Chair of Meteorology of the TU Dresden is responsible for the development and provision of ReKIS. The data, maps, graphics and functionalities offered by ReKIS address primarily experts in the field of climate analysis, familiar with the topics of climate modeling, climate change and climate adaptation. In order to provide communities and municipal administrations with information they require, the Saxon State Agency for Environment, Geology and Agriculture (LfULG) and the TU Dresden are developing during the project time of LIFE LOCAL ADAPT the additional tool ReKIS kommunal for Saxony. In three categories, tailored information is offered for the main target group of small and medium sized communities and their administrations.

Climate Risks

With the help of an interactive map, specific thematic plots on climate change impacts (heat, heavy rainfall, erosion) can be accessed for each Saxon community and for different periods. Fact sheets summarize the information.


This site provides information and examples on the topic of adaptation to climate change.


Advisory services and a list of funding opportunities are intended to help communities to implement their ideas and plans.

At the moment the web pages are under construction. From 2019, all functionalities should be available.
