The ECONADAPT data repository was developed to include cost and benefit estimates for adaptation measures and with this support the evaluation of climate adaptation activities on different scales. It contains cost and benefits which were compiled and estimated in the ECONADAPT Case study Work Packages 5-9. Furthermore, it includes information from reviews in the methods oriented WPs. It is developed in a web-based format http://econadapt-toolbox.eu/data-sources.
This report explains the objectives, target group, structure and content of the data repository. The data repository is structured to deliver an easy access to estimated cost and benefit estimates of adaptation measures but also to interlink with the original documents which contain the estimation method and important assumptions used for the calculation which are essential for interpretation of results. The data repository contains 54 adaptation measures and 249 data sources.
The ECONADAPT data repository is part of the ECONADAPT Toolbox. For more information on the toolbox see also D10.1: “ECONADAPT Web-Toolbox” which contains an overview on all different toolbox products.
