  • Identifying Possible Means for Adaptation
  • Typology of Adaptation
  • Preparing for Adaptation

  • Autonomous actions
  • Technological solutions – grey measures
  • Ecosystem-based adaptation solutions – green measures
  • Behavioural, managerial and policy approaches – soft measures.
  • Adaptation can be either reactive of anticipatory.
  • Strengthen the institutional adaptation capacity
  • Inform about climate change vulnerabilities
  • ”Wait-and-see”
  • Effect-oriented adaptation adaptation delay measures
  • Cause-oriented adaptation measures
  • Strengthening Institutional Capacity
  • Political competence – e.g. in connection with training of newly elected local government representatives
  • Administrative competence – either by hiring experts or by strengthening the competence of existing staff
  • Administrative capacity – findings from many analyses of criteria for municipal environment work shows that the main problem is rarely a lack of competence, but rather a lack of capacity
  • Integrating considerations of climate adaptation in planning processes
  • Changing the perspective on knowledge from conventional to alternative knowledge
  • Analyzing vulnerability to climate change by taking into consideration the effects of both climate change and socio-economic change.
  • Informing the local population about the results of the local analyses of climate vulnerability and the need for climate adaptation.
  • Making up the current maintenance delay with regards to physical infrastructure.
