The possibilities of standards and technical regulations to promote climate change adaptation activities have been considered in Germany for some time. The "German Strategy for Adaptation to Climate Change" recommended as early as 2008, among other things, the consideration of climatic developments in technical building regulations and standards related to building technology (Bundesregierung 2008: 20). Particularly in the case of building structures and large infrastructure systems (energy, transport, etc.), which are designed for decades of use, consideration of climate change is necessary in order to maintain safety standards and resilience in the long term (cf. CEN-CENELEC, n.d.). Areas in which standardisation can concretely support adaptation to climate change and contribute to resilience to the consequences of climate change include: the protection of people and goods through climate-adapted construction, the reduction of the effects of heat waves through adapted building technology and improved flood prevention by taking into account the effects of climate change on heavy precipitation. So far, however, the consequences of climate change or the need for adaptation have hardly been taken into account in standards and technical regulations. When the topic appears there, it is usually in a less binding manner. If climate impacts and adaptation are to be taken into account in a comprehensive way in standards in the medium term, various things seem to be necessary, among others: The inclusion of climate impacts and the implementation of adaptation measures must be more strongly established or perceived as state of the art in the respective fields of work; standardisation committees must become more familiar with the inclusion of climate data in their work and receive support for this. In addition, standard-setting organisations must give more strategic priority to the topic and modify procedural guidelines for the work of standardisation committees to encourage them to consider climate change.
