Inventory of methods for climate adaptation

As of: September 2021

The project provided decision-makers in the partner countries with a tried and tested inventory of methods for identifying, analysing and prioritising adaptation needs and measures. It supported the effective management of climate-relevant data and promoted the establishment of a network to facilitate South-South exchange among adaptation stakeholders. In this way, the project enabled local stakeholders to make decisions on adaptation to climate change that are strategically appropriate and effective in the long term. This in turn increased the partner countries’ ability to adapt and lowered the long-term costs associated with climate change. The project also supported the development of methods for verifying the effectiveness of adaptation measures.

State of implementation/results

  • Project completed
  • An international workshop was held during the climate conference in Durban. It provided a forum for actors to engage in intensive discussion of their experience with methods and instruments for adaptation to climate change;
  • A theoretical foundation for a climate change impact index was developed. It provides decision-makers with information about climatic changes in a summarised and visual form;
  • A tool kit for establishing climate change impact chains is being developed;
  • The platform of the network is being refined to facilitate joint learning and an exchange of ideas and information among experts
  • A series of webinars open to participants worldwide has been carried out;
  • A short film entitled 'We know enough about climate change. It is time for decisions now!' was produced and received a silver award at the Deauville Green Awards film festival
