Urban Adaptation Support Tool

Created: 11/06/2016 - Updated: 12/13/2018


The Urban Adaptation Support tool has been developed as the adaptation guidance for urban areas by Mayors Adapt, the EU initiative for urban adaptation, which is now part of the Covenant of Mayors for Climate & Energy. Mayors Adapt recognized the need for European adaptation decision-makers and practitioners in cities to be guided through the main steps of the adaptation process. As a result, this tool provides easy access to relevant adaptation information, data, tools and guidance specifically tailored for urban settings in Europe. In its main structure, the tool is an off-shoot of the general Adaptation Support Tool on Climate-ADAPT platform and follows a harmonized EU approach to adaptation guidance.
