Preparing the ground for adaptation Assessing risks and vulnerabilities to climate change Identifying adaptation options Assessing adaptation options Implementation Monitoring and evaluation


The start of the implementation of adaptation action can be either a dedicated adaptation strategy and an accompanying action plan or a plan for mainstreaming adaptation in the existing relevant policy fields. An adaptation strategy describes the strategic direction and targets (as defined in Q2.8 and Q2.10) and the action plan sets out what needs to be done to convert adaptation options into action. However, it should be noted that concrete action plans and/or sectoral plans can also be elaborated as an integrated part of the national adaptation strategy.
