Evolving Regions - Innovative and interactive tool for regional climate impact analysis

  • Projects

The current status of the climate impact analyses was presented and actively applied in the first four regions of Evolving Regions, namely Wesel, Steinfurt, Siegen-Wittgenstein and Soest, as part of the roadmap process. The results were jointly discussed in online workshops and compared with the perceived impact and empirical values. The participants found that the wide range of climatic and spatial data as well as the innovative and interactive tool, Tableau (see the figure), very helpful and goal-oriented. In the next step, measures will be developed under the direction of the Sozialforschungsstelle Dortmund (TU Dortmund), and the Deutsches Institut für Urbanistik based on the findings obtained and spatially located with the help of the analyses.

Example of the dashboard of the climate impact analysis

Parallel to the ongoing roadmap process, more detailed data was collected for the climate impact analyses in the districts and associated municipalities. These are now being incorporated into the new version of the climate impact analyses, which will include a wider range of sensitivity data as well as future projections regarding climatic and spatial developments. Furthermore, the remaining three districts of Coesfeld, Minden-Lübbecke and Lippe are currently starting the process in which the climate impact analysis will also be used as an evidence basis.

In addition to the work within the regions, the knowledge gained in terms of content and methodology was further disseminated within the framework of a consultant training course. In the international context, a method comparison with the approach of the Dutch region took place, using the results for improvements of the ER methodology and especially the visualisation.

Location & approach

The TU Dort­mund campus is located near the Dort­mund West interchange, where the A45 Sauerland line crosses the B1/A40 Ruhr expressway. The Dort­mund-Eichlinghofen exit on the A45 leads to the South Campus, the Dort­mund-Dorstfeld exit on the A40 leads to the North Campus. Coming from the A45, you can turn onto Stockumer Straße via Universitätsstraße. This in turn is connected to Baroper Straße, along which Campus South extends. If you take the exit of the A-40, the route via Emil-Figge Straße, Marie-Curie Allee to Baroper Straße makes sense. If you turn from Baroper Straße into August-Schmidt Straße, you have the possibility to reach the parking lot directly behind the GB III.

The South Campus is connected via Stockumerstraße by bus lines 440 and 449, which run every 10 minutes. Campus South can be reached on foot from the Am Gardenkamp stop, and the Eichlinghofen H-Bahn station is also located near the Eichlinghofen stop. The bus lines connect to the U42 light rail line at the Barop Parkhaus stop, which provides connections to the Dort­mund-Hombruch district and Dort­mund downtown. 

From Dort­mund-Eichlinghofen, the South Campus is connected to the H-Bahn network via the Eichlinghofen H-Bahn station. Line 1 runs here every 10 minutes, and the South Campus is served by the Campus Süd stop. 
A connection to Campus North is also provided via the H-Bahn. Line 2 shuttles between Campus North and Campus South every 5 minutes.

The AirportExpress is a fast and convenient means of transport from Dort­mund Airport (DTM) to Dort­mund Central Station, taking you there in little more than 20 minutes. From Dort­mund Central Station, you can continue to the uni­ver­si­ty campus by interurban railway (S-Bahn). A larger range of in­ter­na­tio­nal flight connections is offered at Düsseldorf Airport (DUS), which is about 60 kilometres away and can be directly reached by S-Bahn from the uni­ver­si­ty station.

The facilities of TU Dort­mund University are spread over two campuses, the larger Campus North and the smaller Campus South. Additionally, some areas of the uni­ver­si­ty are located in the adjacent “Technologiepark”.
