The Adaptation Support Tool – Getting started

How to use the Adaptation Support Tool?

The Adaptation Support Tool consists of six steps that together help you explore risks and vulnerability to the current and future climate, identify and assess adaptation options, develop and implement a climate change adaptation strategy and/or action plan, and monitor its results. Each step of the Adaptation Support Tool consists of a general introduction and a number of more detailed support sections. It is recommended that you read through the introduction of each step before you choose to either examine it in detail or proceed to the next step. The Adaptation Support Tool will not produce a tailor made climate adaptation strategy at the press of a button. It rather intends to highlight key issues to consider when planning and implementing adaptation and provides access to relevant information, tools and resources.
