Tools for adaptation strategies – Theme 8, Knowledge for Climate research programme
Tools for adaptation strategies aims at improving tools for design and evaluation of adaptation strategies with a special focus on spatial planning and cross cutting issues. Theme 8 focuses on three core elements:
- tools for formulation of the adaptation task, based on climate scenarios and economic development;
- tools for development and visualization of adaptation strategies in general and in particular related to hotspots and case study areas of KvK; and
- evaluation and monitoring tools for assessing adaptation strategies in terms of various indicators such as costs and benefits, side effects, equity issues, efficiency and temporal and spatial scales
The program will contribute to the ongoing planning process in the Netherlands at various levels. The SPINlab will be focussing on Work Package 1 entitled Integrating and downscaling national socio-economic scenarios, which seeks to improve the spatial modeling and the socioeconomic scenarios as such that they can be better used at the regional level. This makes it possible to analyse the adaptation options at the local and regional level in the context of well defined socio-economic scenarios. This is essential for the applications of adaptation options in the hotspots and case study areas.
In order to achieve the goals, the work package is split into two projects: 1) Integrating sector-specific models in a land-use modeling framework, and 2) Incorporating intensity and multiple functionality in the land-use model.
