Using the Adaptation Support Tool

The Adaptation Support Tool (AST) consists of six steps that together help to prepare the ground for adaptation, explore risks and vulnerability to the current and future climate risks, identify and assess adaptation options, develop and implement activities for an adaptation strategy and/or adaptation plan, and monitor and evaluate its results.

Each step of the AST consists of a general introduction and a number of more detailed support sections. Reading the introduction of each step before choosing to either examine it in detail or proceeding to the next step is recommended. 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 developing, planning, implementing, monitor and evaluate adaptation and provides access to relevant information, tools and resources.
