The Adaptation Tool for Local Authorities (ATLA) project is designed to enable local authorities across Europe to access the climate knowledge they need to prioritise and implement adaptation strategies. By uniting a climate resilient leader in business intelligence, CLIMPACT-METNEXT with the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research and Regional Implementation Communities, the proposal is to scope out a unified web-based toolbox for local climate adaptation services.

As the major global issue of our lifetime, climate change is at risk of simply being viewed from a macro level. But with a growing realisation that its impacts are likely to be felt locally, pressure is increasing for strategic approaches for adaptation to be devised and delivered from a local level. This is putting greater responsibility on local decision makers, who without a unified framework in place, are struggling to gain access the climate knowledge they need from inside the scientific community. Without this knowledge, and with such a diverse range of services available, it has become difficult for individual local authorities throughout Europe to prioritise and implement adaptation strategies.
