The report shows different approaches for climate change adaption. It shows that though municipalities choose traditional pipe based approach for increasing capacity of sewerage, there is an ongoing shift from traditional pipe based approach local solutions with more green areas for handling rainwater. But this ongoing shift is not dominant yet. For this new paradigm, municipalities need to build their institutional capacity by collaborative planning approach and by resilient approach. I hereby, conclude that municipalities are collaborating with utilities for climate change adaptation very explicitly while till now citizen participation is included in the process of public hearing. Municipalities face some communication challenges to work with citizens. There are other barriers that hinder adaptation tasks for example: technical barrier, lack of manpower, lack of time, financial barrier and legislative barrier. Though some municipalities have already engaged citizens in some demonstration projects for example in Brøndby and in Rødovre citizens took part in the road renovation project. But the examples of such case are very few. Moreover, municipalities rely more on technical know-how.
