Process Stage 3Implementing Adaptation: StakeholdersInitiating Adaptation Measures LocallyA traditional approach to initiating local climate change adaptation is to start out with analysing thecommunity’s climate vulnerability. Next, an adaptation strategy can be drafted and followed up withadaptation measures.A few points of elaboration:• It is useful to separate between a broad approach, where a wide range of themes and climate parameters are analysed, and a narrow approach where only a selection of problem areas are analysed.• Policy fields where climate adaptation might be carried out include energy, civil protection, land- use planning, biodiversity, pollution, etc.• Adaptation considerations or measures could be integrated into several planning documents, e.g. municipal plans, risk and vulnerability analyses, sector plans, budgets, etc. Climate AdaptationOnline Training Resource
