We determine the medium to long term impact of climate change on all aspects of the natural environment and look at how these can be managed and mitigated within each environment.

Ensuring resilience to change . . .

We help our customers adapt to the challenges presented by climate change by providing sustainable engineering solutions to meet the National indicator 188.

Habitat management

Habitat management is an important aspect in the maintenance and promotion of biodiversity, especially in the face of a changing climate. 


Royal HaskoningDHV has undertaken several pioneering projects in this field and can offer the following habitat management services: 

  • development and implementation of Environmental Action Plans (EAP)
  • creating resilience within habitats to minimise negative implications of climate induced change
  • adaptation of unsustainable coastal habitats
  • restoration and enhancement of habitats

Habitats regulations assessment

We provide advice and guidance to a variety of sectors, about the implementation of the Habitats Regulations Assessment.

This assessment involves the delivery of detailed reports that support local development framework documents, shoreline management plans and materials that supports the assessment.
