The Danish strategy can be characterised by a strong focus on regulations and decentralisation towards municipalities. The strategy is formulated in a way that a lot should be done, instead of articulating the measures that will be done. The attention for spatial planning is relatively low. Responsibility for conducting and realisation of adaptation plans is decentralised towards municipalities. The focus on sectors affected by climate change is combined with a crosscutting ministerial strategy, which is supported with a strong emphasis on knowledge development.
