Climate Impacts: Global and Regional Adaptation Support Platform (CI: GRASP)

As of: October 2021

The aim of the project was to expand the knowledge base for decision-makers in developing countries and emerging economies. To achieve this, it created an open, interactive and adaptive information platform that provides access to data on climate change, its potential meteorological and socio-economic impacts, and adaptation measures. The platform, which is publicly accessible online, uses maps to present information in a clear and visually effective way.
