This BASE Adaptation Inspiration Book: 23 European Cases of Climate Change Adaptation is the result of four years extensive case study research carried out within the EU FP-7 Project BASE: Bottom-up climate adaptation strategies towards a sustainable Europe (2012-2016).
This report outlines 21 policy-relevant recommendations – and supporting evidence – for policy-makers working at the EU, national and local levels to support adaptation decision-making. The recommendations are based on the combined findings of the BASE project and are differentiated between different policy levels, yet generic enough to be applied to different decision-making contexts. The lessons are based around the following 5 themes:
This deliverable show how findings from modeling, case studies and the RCP-SSP story line framework can be brought together to inform adaptation policies across Europe using a step by step process tool. The steps of the tool are explained and implemented for 4 regional storylines (Northern-Arctic, North-Western, Central-Eastern and Southern-Mediterranean Europe) and three combined socio-economic and climate scenarios with different adaptation and mitigation challenges.
Here is a selection of BASE reports produced within the project.
Each report belongs to a specific project module (or Work Package):
This document aims to offer a synthesis and discussion of the methodological process and results of implementing climate change adaptation case study research, reporting on the key messages and lessons learnt through a critical comparison of case studies that equally accounts for the stakeholders’ perspectives.

This report evaluates the integration of climate adaptation into the sectoral policy making of the European Commission, particularly following the publication of the European Union Adaptation Strategy. It focuses on integration in key sectors: coasts and marine, agriculture and biodiversity, health and water, with an emphasis on barriers and enablers of integration.
This deliverable assesses the implementation of adaptation measures and strategies through the study of their key barriers and drivers. The study categorises drivers and barriers to adaptation for each case study across temporal stages of adaptation progress, and looks at how barriers have been overcome and for patterns to provide recommendations.
