Compendium on methods and tools to evaluate impacts of, vulnerability and adaptation to, climate change


Adaptation Actions Database (UK)
Description An online searchable database that has been developed and is maintained by UKCIP staff. Adaptation Actions contains examples of activities people in the UK have undertaken to exploit the opportunities that climate change might provide or to adapt to the risks of our changing climate. The database only includes examples of activities that have actually been implemented and does not include adaptation activities that are "a good idea". Users can search the database to see what others have done to adapt and get ideas on how to adapt to reduce their climate risks or exploit opportunities.
Appropriate Use To stimulate thinking on the types of actions that could be taken to adapt to climate change. Note that this is not a definitive list, and the adaptation actions included in the database have not been validated or endorsed by UKCIP.
Scope Includes mostly UK but some international actions.
Key Output Information on examples of different types of adaptation actions.
