Assessment of climate change impacts, vulnerability and adaptation requires a combination of generic and context-specific knowledge. Currently, the availability of such knowledge in Europe is fragmented and incomplete. MEDIATION addresses these challenges, e.g. by (i) a systematic analysis of the decision-making context; (ii) inventory, review and improvement of methods and metrics for impacts and vulnerability analysis; (iii) likewise for costing of impacts and adaptation options; (iv) development of an overarching integrated methodology; (v) development of a flexible, interactive common platform for knowledge sharing.

Defining the policy needs; Reviewing, linking and improving or developing appropriate methods, tools and metrics; Developing an overarching integrated methodology; Making a tool box available and disseminating the project results

PIK will lead WP 5 "Common platform" (database of spatial information; definition of guidelines for data structure and representation; construction and definition of an adaptation database; development of the platform; developing and maintaining project website)
