Assessing and prioritizing climate change sectoral risks

This project aimed to strengthen adaptation to climate change in the Basque Country within the framework of the Basque Country Climate Change Strategy 2050. To this end, a climate risk analysis of the main sectors in the Basque Country was carried out and the sectors in which action is a priority were identified.

The methodology used is based on the Fifth Assessment Report (AR5) of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and focuses on sectorial interrelations.

Firstly, an analysis of the state-of-the-art of the sectors was developed, thus determining the state of the sectors, and recognizing the main sub-sectors. Based on the available information, a list of exposition, sensitivity and adaptation indicators were proposed for each sector, through which climate risk was calculated. A cartographic representation of climate risk by sectors was produced using GIS tools. Finally, the most vulnerable sectors were identified, and adaptation solutions were proposed. The outputs of the project were transmitted by information and dissemination campaigns.
