Compendium on methods and tools to evaluate impacts of and vulnerability and adaptation to climate change
The publication contains descriptions and links to key information about existing adaptation analysis, decision frameworks and tools, special features of each framework or tool, and information about how to obtain documentation, training, or publications supporting each tool. It has been designed to be used as a reference document to identify available frameworks and tools for assessing vulnerability and adaptation. It is intended for use by either assessment managers or technical researchers; it does not require extensive technical knowledge of modelling or specific decision-making techniques. Related to agriculture sectors, the compendium contains tools e.g. on downscaling techniques for climate impact and weather variability; for socio-economic scenarios; for decision making; estimating cost for adaptation. It has also specific tools for agriculture and water sectors, terrestrial vegetation and for coastal areas.
