The project aimed at developing and assessing policy instruments for the adaptation to climate change with an integrated economic approach. In particular, existing structures of financing and incentivizing adaptation projects were to be further developed. The background of the project was regional climate change as predicted by climate models for Germany, which will influence the conditions of life and the economy significantly. Within the project both a qualitative and a quantitative analysis were conducted.
