Table 1.3.2       Driving force behind establishing climate adaptation platforms

Adaptation Platforms

Driving Force

National

Austria

Developed as part of the participatory process to accompany and support the development of the Austrian NAS/NAP

Denmark

Initiative within the Danish Strategy on Climate Change Adaptation (2008)

Finland

Established to fulfil a perceived need to provide the research based climate change information that would be applicable in particular at the local (municipal) level

France

Launched in the framework of the French National Plan of Adaptation to Climate Change (NAPCC)

Germany

Develop and implement the German Adaptation Strategy and to identify ways towards a resilient strategy

Hungary

Created to exchange scientific information and policy on climate change and can serve as a partnership on climate policy as a forum

Ireland

One-stop web-based source information, data and resources to facilitate decision-makers in the development of adaptation plans

The Netherlands

The idea for the development of platform originated from the Delta programme and the Knowledge for Climate programme. The Delta Programme is an inter-governmental initiative, which involves the State, the ministry together with the provinces and the municipalities and is aimed to proactively protect the Netherlands against disasters. There are no links to the NAS (separate website linked to the NAS)

Norway

The platform aims to gather relevant knowledge and information about climate adaptation in one location. The portal is created mainly for planners and decision makers on local and regional level, but the information should be easily accessible and interesting for all who are engaged with what climate change will mean for the Norwegian society.

Poland

Need to support the implementation of the Polish National Adaptation Strategy – exchanging information, making information from relevant projects, reports, etc. available, and to create an official one-stop-shop for adaptation information in Poland

Spain

To reinforce the governance of the National Adaptation Plat to Climate Change (PNACC); providing a tool to exchange information and to enhance coordination among administrations and key stakeholders

Switzerland

Developed as part of the NAS to provide most relevant adaptation information and to sensitise target groups (administrative bodies on all levels and experts)

 

Sweden

Support society and citizens preparing for the consequences of climate change; increase interest and understanding of adaptation by serving as the national focal point on adaptation

United Kingdom

Gov.uk provides latest information on government action and policy on adapting to climate change within the UK. Sets out legal arrangements and includes links to key partner organisations.

UKCIP initially funded by government between 1997 and 2012 to stimulate understanding of impacts of climate change at the UK level and facilitate adaptation action

Climate Ready Support Service delivered by the Environment Agency provides tailored sector support to help the public sector and businesses in England adapt to climate change. It provides online tools and guidance through a range of partner platforms with local audiences, including Climate UK and Climate Local.

Trans-national

Alpine Region

The adaptation part of the Alpine convention website was developed in the frame of the action plan of measures for the alpine region. The C3 Alps platforms was an initiative by the C3-Alps project in response to the need to capitalise on and make available in a target group-oriented approach the increasing quantity of knowledge being funded by European and national programmes

Pyrenees

Strategic initiative of the Working Community of the Pyrenees to tackle climate change at the Pyrenean transnational bio-geographic region – to support decision making, raise awareness and capacity building

European

Climate-ADAPT

Supports and integral component of the EU Strategy on Adaptation

    Jelena Milos - instead of 'Supports and integral component of the EU Strategy on Adaptation', it would be good to clarify the text by inserting 'Supports the implementation of and is an integral component of the EU Strategy on Adaptation'

    "The adaptation part of the Alpine Convention website was developed in the frame of the action plan of measures for the alpine region" we would like to propose following formulation : ""The adaptation part of the Alpine Convention website was developed in the frame of its action plan consecrated to climate change in the alpine region"
