Methods and Tools for Adaptation to Climate Change - A Handbook for Provinces, Regions and Cities

Description:

This Handbook seeks to support politicians and experts in the public administrations of provinces and cities, as well as actors in regional management. Specifically, the Handbook provides guidance for the strategic and proactive examination of the consequences of climate change. A milestone in this process is reached when potential measures for adaptation to climate change have been identified and their implementation has begun. Ideally, concrete measures for adaptation and strategies for dealing with the consequences of climate change should be documented in an adaptation strategy and action plan.
The Handbook presents an extensive collection of methods and tools that can assist the responsible actors in the course of the adaptation process. The methods and tools are designed to help actors to identify and overcome potential challenges in the forefront.
