Adaptation toolkit for the North Sea Region in a changing climate


Climate change will have effects on different sectors (e.g., water management, agriculture, living and recreation) in the countries of the North Sea Region. This is investigated and concluded in the Climate Proof Areas (CPA) report “Comparison of climate change effects across North Sea countries”. It requires at least attention and awareness of possible problems or opportunities in the future. This toolkit aims to be helpful in an adaptation process by offering an overview of experiences with supporting climate adaptation tools. This report is a product of the Interreg IV-b project Climate Proof Areas (CPA). It is intended to assist process managers who are setting up or managing a process of climate proofing an area. It describes the experiences of tools used by the CPA project team.
