RUINS analyses risk, uncertainty and insurance with regard to the effects of climate change and necessary adaptation measures on the German North Sea coast. In particular, the concept of "Knightian uncertainty" will be investigated and procedures for the analysis and communication of combined risk and uncertainty will be developed. The aim is to develop a sustainable land management option for the region in cooperation with stakeholders, taking trade-offs and conflicts into account.
