Tools and assesment methods
Faced with the great diversity of solutions and levers to respond to the challenges of climate change, methods are necessary to help actors assess alternatives, make choices, combine strategies in time and space.
Strategies can be made up of different measures / solutions of different types.
Assessment tools and methods can be useful for:
- identify and design strategies
- evaluate ex ante strategies
- ex post evaluating and monitoring the development of strategies
Among the existing methods, many can be mobilized to inform the decision in order to take into account and represent the impact of climate change on plants, but also on practices and on the economic and financial dimension. For example a plant growth model that simulates the effect of agronomic practices on the yield and quality of wine or an estimate of the cost-effectiveness of an adaptation strategy. Depending on the question to be clarified, the methods will be implemented at different scales: farm, wine-growing area or other. Territorial scales can be mobilized to answer questions about the orientation of public policies.
These tools and methods can rely solely on scientific and technical tools such as models () or on participatory approaches that involve stakeholders from the value chain and beyond. More and more approaches are being developed using both types of approaches.
The significant uncertainty associated with climate scenarios and other factors makes them a non-negligible aspect to be taken into account in these approaches.
