The emerging need for multi-model analysis has driven the creation of adaptation toolboxes, which both describe the steps to be undertaken for an adaptation risk management process as well as provide access and information on available methods and models to use in such an analysis. The number of tools and guidelines pertaining to climate change has skyrocketed, driven mostly by international aid agencies and NGOs, yet, there still is to be widespread use of a suite or toolbox of different methods. Instead, there are a myriad number of different tools that each performs well in some niche, with individual strengths.

MEDIATION incorporates a toolbox of methods and models for use in climate change impacts, adaptation and vulnerability studies, which integrates closely with the integrated methodology. In this way the project aims to create both a means of guiding a user through an adaptation assessment, and provide exemplary tools or recommend methods to be used, based on individual requirements. Specifically, the MEDIATION toolbox addresses the following categories: (1) Impact analysis, (2) Decision making, (3) Planning and implementation, (4) Participation and engagement, (5) Capacity analysis, (6) Institutional analysis, (7) Behavioural analysis, (8) Learning and reflection, (9) Monitoring and evaluation, (10) Valuation, (11) Scenario analysis, and (12) Treating uncertainty. Toolbox entries are linked both with the Pathfinder and with case study steps that have used the described entry.
