The project "Economics of Climate Change Adaption" was funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) under the funding program "Economics of Climate Change" with the funding number 01LA1137A and ran from November 2011 – December 2015. On this website you will find all information, results and publications of the project summarized. The Institute for Ecological Economy Research (IÖW) is also conducting research on adaptation to and costs of climate change in follow-up projects. www.ioew.de/en
