BASE Adaptation Inspiration Book: 23 European Cases of Climate Change Adaptation (2016)

Description

Pivoted largely on findings from a meta-analysis of BASE case study research, the book presents a brief overview of 23 diverse in-depth case studies that span across Europe, administrative levels, geographic scales, multiple sectors and trans-disciplines. Case studies range from traditional analytical studies to participatory action-research. Depending on the climate change adaptation phase, needs and challenges, each case study focuses on one or a combination of methods applied in the climate change adaptation planning process, namely: economic evaluations of adaptation options; participatory applications; and implementation barriers and opportunities.

The BASE Adaptation Inspiration Book: 23 European Cases of Climate Change Adaptation is the result of four years extensive case study research carried out within the EU FP-7 Project BASE: Bottom-up climate adaptation strategies towards a sustainable Europe (2012-2016).
