The Cloudburst Management Plan is a city-wide strategy for dealing with extreme rainfall events. The strategy was adopted by the City of Copenhagen, Denmark in 2012 to complement the Copenhagen Climate Adaptation Plan adopted a year earlier. The objective of the Cloudburst Management Plan is to reduce the impact of flood events as a result of heavy rains which are expected to increase in frequency as a result of climate change. To implement the plan, the city aims to realise 300 projects over 20 years. Every year, the city decides which projects will be undertaken through a prioritisation process that ensures new projects are implemented in high risk areas, areas where measures are easy to implement, or areas where new investments can be connected to ongoing urban development projects. The plan is jointly implemented and financed by the City of Copenhagen, the Greater Copenhagen Utility Company and private actors such as private landowners.
