CLIMSAVE 6th newsletter: Climate Change Integrated Assessment Methodology
15.05.2013

The 6th issue of the CLIMSAVE project newsletter is now available. The newsletter focuses on providing an overview of the CLIMSAVE method for identifying vulnerability hotspots within the project’s Integrated Assessment Platform (IAP). The IAP is an exploratory tool for assessing cross-sectoral climate change impacts, vulnerability and adaptation in Europe and Scotland.

The CLIMSAVE vulnerability methodology is a relatively simple, systematic process that allows the CLIMSAVE Integrated Assessment Platform (IAP) to move beyond mapping impact and adaptation to identify vulnerability hotspots. The method has been implemented within the “Vulnerability” screen of the IAP which allow the user to map vulnerability hotspots for seven indicators: (1) Water Availability; (2) Flooding; (3) Food Security; (4) Timber Supply; (5) Land Use Intensification; (6) Landscape Diversity / Multi-functionality; and (7) Biodiversity.
