Preparing the ground for adaptation

Get a first overview on actual and potential future climate change related effects

When starting the process of climate change adaptation planning, a first screening of existing work on possible climate change related effects in the short, medium and long term should be done. Several sectors/themes might be affected: agriculture, forestry, water management, fishery, biodiversity and ecosystem services, health, energy, tourism, transport, construction/buildings, economic/industry, civil protection/disaster risk reduction, social issues. A broad first overview on possible climate change related effects will help to trigger the process and develop a case for adaptation and provides a basis for a more in-depth analysis at a later stage. In addition, it helps to foster the discussion on adaptation policy relevant aspects such as objectives, priority sectors, vulnerable groups, etc.
