Adaptation processes in metropolitan areas are notably faced with nescience and uncertainty about future challenges and with various competing stakeholders, vulnerabilities, interests and responsibilities. By using Integrated Roadmapping, the region Emscher–Lippe–Ruhr will develop a reference framework for a region-spanning adaptation process that both connects previously isolated topics and continuously coordinates knowledge, activities and goals of local administrations, corporate sector and society.
