Climate Impacts Research and Response Coordination for a Larger EuropePublished by: University of Lisbon ; 2013
This book provides a great overview of practical and early examples of actual adaptive actions already taking place across Europe. It provides detailed information on each identified measure: to which sector it belongs, (i.e. water safety, agriculture, cities), specific climate effects adapted to, length of the project and costs and benefits, including the proportion of the budget project leaders indicated was allocated specifically to adaptation. The identified measures tend to focus on water management (19 percent), biodiversity (19 percent), city planning (14 percent) and disaster risk reduction (14 percent) and most often tend to find adaptation solutions for flooding (72 percent). But the book also includes sea-level rise, heat waves and drought case studies. The book is intended to inspire and teach professionals, policy makers and researchers to initiate their own local adaptation projects or improve current strategies and plans for adapting to climate change.
