Preparing the ground for adaptation

Step 1 of the Urban Adaptation Support Tool introduces key elements important for building the foundation for a successful adaptation process. These include the need to obtain and assure high level support, identify already available information, set up adequate coordination mechanisms and clarify roles and responsibilities. Further, Step 1 explains how to explore financing and funding opportunities, develop and manage stakeholder cooperation, increase awareness or understanding of climate change issues within the urban area and find additional adaptation support.
