Regional adaptation strategies: launch of the REIS-platform
The Regional Exchange Information System (REIS) is an open platform for the knowledge-based discussion and further development of regional climate change adaptation strategies. With a thematic focus on selected Blue Economy sectors, the REIS platform bundles multidisciplinary research expertise with relevant background information. The "Adaptation Support Tool for Islands", which can be used interactively on the REIS platform, currently provides scientific insights on 17 selected climate change hazard categories for 12 island groups.
The information base of the Adaptation Support Tool builds on research outcomes from the European research project SOCLIMPACT that GWS was involved in. This project received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 776661.
