In the next decades, buildings and infrastructure will be exposed to significantly different climatic strains than they are today. Still, building standards and design guidelines presuppose use of historic weather data. Thus, we need a point of departure for the support of decision-making aimed at reducing risk and climate vulnerability in the built environment. We therefore propose a new climate adaptation framework in compliance with the Norwegian Planning and Building Act; A general framework for climate adaptation and moisture-resilient buildings, tailor-made for implementation in both national and international standards, certification schemes and design guidelines.
