CAPITAL-ADAPT – first series of workshops started!

The project CapitalAdapt investigates the role of human and social capital in coping with and adapting to climate change. Thus, it focuses on human and social aspects of the climate change discussion such as knowledge, education, health, relationships and involvement in the community. On October 7th and 14th the first project-workshops started in the two case studies Virgen and Klosterneuburg.

At the workshops the current state of research was presented. Then workshop participants discussed challenges of future climate change impacts and possible consequences for the specific case study. Moreover, areas which could possibly be most affected (vulnerability hotspots) were identified.
A second series of workshops which will focus on elaborating concrete measures related to climate change adaptation will be held in spring 2012.
