Identifying adaptation options
Explore good practices and existing measures
Good practice examples for activities and measures in place that already cope with changing climatic conditions (e.g. temperature rise, changes in precipitation patterns, extreme weather events) should be considered and assessed as well. They can provide insights into the adjustments/improvements that may be required to accommodate future climate change. Moreover, it becomes obvious where gaps are and which barriers may exist that hinder successful adaptation.
