BioDiv-Support: A web tool that can be used to plan for adaptation

We have created a planning tool for assessing changes in climate, air quality and vegetation in mountainous regions from present day to mid-century (2000-2050), considering socio-economic and policy development, and management practices.

We constructed a list of climate, air pollution and ecosystem indices in collaboration with stakeholders, and this was used in the design of the web tool.

The web tool is publicly available online. We provide maps of selected indicators, based on high-resolution climate, air quality and dynamic vegetation model simulations, showing projected changes in the mountain environments. Accompanying texts clarify how the results can be interpreted, the meaning of indices and how the predictions are obtained.
