It includes data on projected climate change impacts, adaptation case studies, EU Sector Policies, as well as adaptation support tools for assessing, identifying, and managing climate change impacts.

Argentina’s Climate Risks Map System (SIMARCC): Interactive website developed by the Argentinian government’s National Climate Change Office that provides risk maps covering different scenarios of threats and vulnerabilities related to climate change. This platform combines georeferenced data on the potential hazards from climate change with data on social vulnerabilities. This tool was designed to be useful for decision makers in the public and private sectors

Brazil’s AdaptaClima Platform: the AdaptaClima platform intends to support the dissemination of information and material on climate change to decision makers.
