Project

NORADAPT : Community Adaptation and Vulnerability in Norway

Description:

The NORADAPT project focuses on how projected changes in climate interact with changes in socioeconomic and institutional conditions, and how these interactions shape vulnerability and adaptation at the local level in Norway. NORADAPT will further develop an indicator-based model for climate change vulnerability assessments using a limited number of municipalities as test sites. The model will be made applicable at the local level for different categories of local vulnerability profiles by involving both local and national stakeholders and undertaking a scientific evaluation. NORADAPT will also address the critical question of uncertainty when conducting local-scale vulnerability assessments and to what extent it is possible to develop adaptation strategies based on local climate change vulnerability assessments. Most project information is available in Norwegian.
