Goal definition
In order to develop a consistent and effective adaptation strategy, it is crucial to define clear goals to address climate threats. These goals will form the backbone of the adaptation strategy and will determine many choices that have to be made in next steps. It is important that these goals will be supported by internal and external stakeholders. Underlying aspects of this step are:
  • Goal setting to determine what risks are to be adressed in the current climate adaptation plan and to what levels the risks are to be reduced in the current adaptation phase.
  • Goal conditions need to be investigated to formulate contraints for the adapatation goals.
