The aim of this essay is to identify which cultural heritage sites are vulnerable to climate change and how they can be adapted to be more resilient in the future. The cultural heritage sites have been identified by using GIS-analysis and then an analysis of vulnerability has been done. In order to limit the study, the analysis was limited to the Swedish landscape Skåne. The analysis showed that Flasterbo-näset is the location in Skåne with the highest cultural values that will be most affected by erosion and rising sea levels. After the analysis different measures of climate adaption are presented and a discussion of advantages and disadvantages. (Less)
