Adaptation Wizard
The Adaptation Wizard developed by the UK Climate Impacts Programme (UKCIP), proposes a simple and generic step-by-step tool, which informs on the need to include climate change adaptation in decision-making processes at organisation/institution level, based on the UK context. It gives broad-spectrum guidance on: 1. how to define climate risks 2. how to assess own vulnerability 3. when to respond 4. which possible scenarios exist to react to climate risks 5. how to cost climate change impacts

Objectif

The Adaptation Wizard is an awareness-raising tool which is well-suited for beginners in the adaptation field. It remains very general but also includes more detailed resources as i.e. spreadsheet costing tool, database of adaptation options by region, sector or adaptation activity etc. Besides the Adaptation Wizard may be relevant in a development context as well, as it can serve as inspiration for developing similar computer-based tools and resources adjusted to a developing country setting.
