Description:

The aim of the Adaptation Strategy is to reduce vulnerability to the consequences of climate change, to maintain or improve the adaptability of natural, social and economic systems, and to take advantage of any opportunities. To facilitate a precautionary approach to sustainable planning and action in the private, scientific, business and public sectors, there is a need to:

• Improve the knowledge base with a view to better define and communicate opportunities and risks, and to identify options for action

• Create transparency and participation by means of a broadly based process of communication and dialogue, and support various stakeholders, for example by providing decision support and information on which to base decisions

• Supporting public awareness raising and information through widespread public relations work

• Developing strategies for dealing with uncertainty factors.
