Identify key instruments for integrating adaptation

Key instruments to serve as entry points for integrating adaptation include, inter alia: legislation, regulations, existing strategies, standards, planning tools, assessment frameworks, research and development programmes, networks and working groups.

The starting basis for the identification of possible entry points are the characteristics of each adaptation option. As part of this screening, departments and experts with jurisdiction over each of the instruments should be consulted.
