There is wide agreement that the climate is changing. This requires society to adapt to a variety of hazards, which are characterized by sometimes large uncertainties. An increasing number of methods and tools is being developed to provide answers to adaptation-related questions. This platform helps to specify the tasks that have to be performed to address climate hazards effectively. It provides access to a Toolbox
with methods and tools that are suitable to inform decision-making, dependent on the situation. It does this through the PROVIA / MEDIATION Adaptation Pathfinder
. The decision trees in this Task Navigator have been derived from a number of diverse case studies
in different parts of Europe.
MEDIATION is a research project funded under the European's Commissions 7th Framework programme. It runs from 2009-2013.
The platform is intended to be used by scientists, policy advisors or practitioners with a technical or scientific background. It was not built for untrained decision-makers or the general public.
