Description of project

The objective of the Digital Compendium is to contribute to emerging knowledge on adaptation by acting as a portal for the dissemination of the trans-disciplinary results from the ADAM project. The tool provides stakeholders with valuable knowledge that may assist their decision-making. This study examines the constraints and opportunities for mainstreaming adaptation to climate change in land use and water management in the Guadiana River Basin, focusing on the conditions that facilitate or limit adaptation, according to six dimensions: biophysical, technical, financial, institutional, social, and cognitive (informational) aspects.
