Matrix of Adaptation Measures

This matrix is a tool to explore the various possibilities of adapting to climate variability and climate change on the local to provincial level. The matrix is filled with more than 40 adaptation measures which are assigned to four impact types (columns) and nine categories of measure (rows). By clicking on a single measure one is directed to its webpage which contains a detailed description of the measure, internet links, and material for download.

About 30 of the measures are considered "evaluated practice" and are alternatively accessible by a separate list.
