Description

The project KLIMPASS was aimed at the development of an adaptation strategy to climate change based on a regional, and local level. The basis of such a strategy is formed by the existing climate change scenarios. The overall goal is to move from a high level of abstraction to context specific conditions, involving local stakeholders and concrete actors. GIS technology was used to process vulnerability maps that support decision-making processes about measures to be implemented envisaging potential climatic threats. This paper describes the overall methodology applied, and focuses later on the GIS-based vulnerability maps.
