Local Action

ADAPTS supports succesful or promising adaptation measures, which are implemented by local organisations, to increase communities’ resilience and to ensure that local knowledge and visions are included in basin and national policy processes.

The impacts of current or planned adaptation measures on the physical, social and economic systems are assessed in field studies. A first assessment of costs and benefits of the measures are also included in this analysis. The field information is important input for a more in-depth evaluation of the potential of the measure, as well as for strategy development to help local communities cope with climate change impacts.

Through replication ADAPTS also introduces successful adaptive approaches and measures to larger geographical areas.
