 Obiettivo del progetto (Objective)

'Climate change can disrupt ecological, social and economic systems, with some regions and sectors suffering significantly. Therefore, adaptation plays a paramount role in responding to climate change. Progress has been made, but there are still important obstacles. Knowledge of the benefits and costs of adaptation is sparse, unsystematic and unevenly distributed across sectors and countries. Planning suffers from substantial uncertainties in terms of precise impacts. It is also difficult to reconcile the bottom-up nature of adaptation with top-down strategic policy making on adaptation. To address these challenges BASE will:

Improve adaptation knowledge availability, integration and utilization Case studies will be used to understand facilitators of, and barriers to, adaptation. Over 20 cases have been selected to cover the diversity of adaptation, simultaneously paying attention to the need for generalization and comparability. The gap between top-down strategic assessments of costs and benefits and empirical context-sensitive bottom-up analyses will be bridged using novel combinations of models and qualitative analyses.

Promote and strengthen stakeholder participation in adaptation BASE will support stakeholder involvement through novel participatory and co-design techniques. Successful bottom-up initiatives will be studied, and the use of knowledge, two-way learning, the role of social media and other awareness raising methods and tools will be explored.

Support coherent, multi-level, multi-sector integrated adaptation policies BASE will provide policy guidelines by integrating lessons from past experiences, case studies, insights provided by modeling and stakeholder participation. Issues of multilevel, cross sectoral and inter-temporal governance that are presently weakly tackled will be highlighted. Potential conflicts and synergies of adaptation with other important policies will be explored to overcome constraints caused by context-related inertias.'

Introduzione (Teaser)

Climate change may have serious consequences for Europe's environment, economy and society. Researchers are assessing various strategies to support Europe in adapting to climate change.

Descrizione progetto (Article)

Policymakers, practitioners and other stakeholders are confronted with a number of challenges in creating suitable and sustainable adaptation strategies. These include uncertainties and insufficient knowledge, as well as the need to improve assessments and mainstreaming of adaptation in policy.

To support adaptation planning and implementation across Europe, the EU-funded 'Bottom-up climate adaptation strategies towards a sustainable Europe' (http://www.base-adaptation.eu (BASE)) project is providing an interdisciplinary evaluation of costs, benefits, effectiveness, challenges and opportunities of adaptation across urban, rural, water, agriculture and health sectors.

In addition, BASE will deliver strategic support to the European Commission's Strategy on adaptation to climate change. It will do this by reinforcing the knowledge base and offering tools to steer decision making on adaptation towards a sustainable Europe.

Project outcomes will also supply information to CLIMATE-ADAPT, an EU initiative that helps users to access and share data and information on adaptation.

Knowledge does not always flow well between top-down and bottom-up processes. As such, the team set out to establish effective communication lines between, for example, EU decision makers and local farmers.

Project work has explored comparable climate change adaptation case studies throughout Europe to accumulate the knowledge and understanding required at local level. Researchers provided six climate and socioeconomic scenarios that were appropriate for the comparable case studies. These covered coastal zones, agriculture and forestry, water resources, human settlements and infrastructure, biodiversity and ecosystems, and health.

Team members have focused on policy at EU level and reported on their findings by examining its strategy and adaptation.

The consortium is stepping up its communication and dissemination activities as well as its online presence via scientific presentations, and leading conferences, such as the second http://www.ecca2015.eu (European Climate Change Adaptation conference), and by contributing to workshops and publications.

BASE activities are making information on adaptation more relevant, understandable and easily accessible.
