The ADAPT MASTER project involves the creation of various tools available to Regions and Metropolitane Areas and Municipalities for mainstreaming adaptation to climate change.
Below we will publish all the MASTER ADAPT tools.
MASTER ADAPT Report on ‘Climate Change Adaptation practices across the EU‘ (Action A2)
A survey and analysis at European level on different, innovative and practical approaches of climate and adaptation policies at regional and local level. The survey have seen the participation of: 1 National EU State, 2 cities (London, Rotterdam and Copenhagen), 14 Regions e 3 Metropolitane Areas
MASTER ADAPT ‘Report on Climate Analysis and Vulnerability Results in the target region (Sardinia) and in the areas targeted in Action C3’ (Action A1)
Among the main objectives of the LIFE MASTER-Adapt Project, the identification and test of innovative tools of multi-level governance is addressed to support Regions and local authorities (cities and groups of towns) in defining and developing adaptation strategies and policies. In particular, the project builds on existing developments in Lombardy and aims at creating a scalable methodology with the purpose to optimise and facilitate the targeting and the integration of Regional policies in different sectors with respect to climate change adaptation (mainstreaming of adaptation).
The structure of the Report reflects the operational approach of the Action, which is mainly based on two sub-tasks implemented both at Regional and target areas level:
– Climate analysis (Chapter 2);
– Vulnerability assessment (Chapter 3).
The main objective of the first deliverable of Action A1 is to provide the knowledge base in terms of climate-related threats, expected climate change impacts and the vulnerability to those impacts required as input information for the adaptation target setting at Regional and sub-Regional level (Action C.1, C2 and C3). The Report describes the procedure adopted and the results achieved by performing past and current climate trends analysis as well as climate projections and by assessing the Regional vulnerability of Sardinia as well as the vulnerability of the target areas.
