 Obiettivo del progetto (Objective)

'Assessment of climate change impacts, vulnerability and adaptation requires a combination of generic and context-specific knowledge. Currently, the availability of such knowledge in Europe is fragmented and incomplete. MEDIATION addresses this challenge through six activities: (i) analysis of the decision-making context; (ii) inventory, review and improvement of methods and metrics for impacts and vulnerability analysis; (iii) likewise for costing of impacts and adaptation options; (iv) development of an overarching integrated methodology; (v) development of a flexible, interactive common platform for knowledge sharing; and (vi) dissemination of this knowledge and training. The components of the project will be connected in an iterative fashion, using case studies which combine selected regional, sectoral and cross-sectoral characteristics and policy questions. The consortium combines eleven top European scientific institutions with a high reputation and long experience in impacts, vulnerability and adaptation research and assessment. They represent different regions in Europe with contrasting vulnerabilities, cover the wide array of disciplinary and interdisciplinary knowledge required to assess sectoral and cross-sectoral vulnerabilities, already participate in numerous related European and national research programmes, and have extensive expertise in science-policy interactions. The project will establish an Advisory Group of key international scientific experts and climate change policy makers to strengthen the scientific basis of the project as well as the policy relevance. In addition to scientific innovation, MEDIATION aims at supporting national and international policy development through targeted interactions, including the UNFCCC process (notably the Nairobi Work Programme), and the EU White Paper process, the latter by systematically addressing the components of the 3rd pillar of the EU Green Paper related to knowledge development and sharing.'

Introduzione (Teaser)

Across the EU, strategies have been designed to protect and increase the resilience of cities and local communities to climate change. For enhanced regional impact, a European project worked to develop a framework identifying methods and tools that address specific adaptation and relevant actions.

Descrizione progetto (Article)

The 'Methodology for effective decision-making on impacts and adaptation (MEDIATION)' (http://www.mediation-project.eu/ (MEDIATION)) project determined that the development of dynamic adaptation policy needs more easily accessible and policy-relevant information.

To this end, researchers first mapped the knowledge requirements related to ongoing impact assessment and adaptation policy developments for various decision domains. This was done in consultation with relevant decision makers and stakeholders. Following, they reviewed, connect, and developed or improved existing methods, tools and metrics.

Development of the MEDIATION framework was based on the results of 11 case studies reflecting different regions, climatic risks and institutional contexts. Developed for four distinct regions of Europe, as well as the EU as a whole, case studies covered topics such as forest fires, agriculture and water resources, livestock, sea-level rise and flooding risk. Countries included Finland, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Serbia and Spain.

Using input from other projects and literature reviews, method teams analysed the different policy contexts and methods used to arrive at an overarching methodology. This was named the MEDIATION Diagnostic Adaptation Framework.

The interlinked framework comprises generic methodologies, natural science-based models, socioeconomic evaluation methods, and social and institutional analytical concepts. As a diagnostic support tool, it supports problem-oriented adaptation research and organises adaptation questions into a logical structure, linking them with suitable methods and tools.

Available via an interactive platform, the framework is intended for experts involved in policy advice and analysis, or other research related to climate change adaptation decision making. The platform allows a search for appropriate methods and tools, and includes the MEDIATION Toolbox and a case study search tool.

Project outcomes better aligned the fragmented knowledge base supporting decisions related to climate change adaptation in Europe. By matching the information and tools advanced by scientists with the needs and capacities of stakeholders, the framework helps decision makers realise more effective adaptation planning. The results of this project and others similar in scope help reduce Europe's vulnerability to climate change and its potential threats to well-being and prosperity.
