The author intends to inform our members of the outcome on the study regarding climate change risk and relevant adaptive measures, which was headed by the author under supervision of Japan Society of Civil Engineers (JCSE). Hereupon, the latest information is intoroduced firstly on the latest climate change research results. Then, discussion is made on what the appropriate adaptive measures should be all about on the basis of recent natural disasters in Japan and the Delta Plan, the latest adaptive measures model in the Netehrlands.
