Climate Change Adaptation It is difficult to mitigate Climate Change. Better to start with adaptation. Adaptation means to adjust your management in such a way that you will be less affected by the impact of climate change. Now is climate change something that is variable from place to place. It is therefore necessary to identify the possible impact of climate change: warmer summers or just colder winters, dryer but more heavy rains in summer, Based on this knowledge the possibilities of climate change adaptation can be dentified. The possibilities can be devided in policy measures and management. On political level a choice can be made to adjust the agricultural information service to adjust the types of crop or varieties, stimulate investments in alternative crops or added value chain. On management level decisions are in case of livestock for example the feed stock, date of selling, choice of new varieties, move from arable farming to husbandry. Also other sectors will be affected like water purification Nature protection has to adapt their management to support the bidiversity by their adaptation to the climate or to survive it for exapmple by enlarging ecotopes and connect them in a Ecological Network (ECONET).
