The session will provide a short overview of the functions of the current "Klimalotse", which was launched in 2010 by the Federal Environment Agency, and will cover its areas of use in adaptation strategies.

The outcomes of the workshop will form a basis for optimising the online guidelines in order to offer municipalities an adaptation tool that is as customised and user-friendly as possible. Together with Prognos AG and with the support of ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability, adelphi is currently revising the first version.
