    • Report on the current conditions and resilience levels of AWO

      RESPOnD identifies AWO areas across the AS using a harmonized approach and quantifies the multiple benefits they deliver in terms of ES. Moreover, it provides a collection of wine-specific high-resolutions maps of climate change projections (temperature and precipitation) targeted to inform practitioners, the wine sector, and public authorities at all levels.

    • Action plan for adopting EbA measures in AWO

      Action plan for adopting EbA measures in AWO. It reflects the insights gained from testing experiences and lays out different transition pathways on how to make AWO more climate resilient. Depending on the levels of climate impacts (and the established targets/goals), it identifies actions, capacities and resources needed for its implementation. At pilot phase conclusion, the action plan will be endorsed by stakeholders, demonstrating their commitment to facilitating continuity and progress.

    • Validated EbA approaches and transition pathways in AWO

      Pool of tested and validated EbA approaches with a particular focused on the experiences gained in implementation phase: description of the success, enabling and hindering factors, the scalability and transferability potential of identified strategies to other Alpine regions (and beyond), acceptance levels among stakeholder, the actions and resources needed for its potential adoption.

    • Online decision support instrument to mainstream ecosystem-based thinking in AWO

      Modular open online platform that supports stakeholders and decision makers in learning, analysing and strategical planning of EbA strategies, specifically designed for AWO. It provides: (i) spatially explicit information on ecosystem services and climate impacts, (ii) learning opportunities around the topics of adaptation and resilience building, and (iii) best practice examples and case studies of successful implementation.
