The ADAM project received research funding from the European Community's Framework 6 Programme. It started March 2006 and finished in July 2009, involving 120 researchers in 26 research institutions across Europe and worldwide.
ADAM supports the EU in the development of post-2012 global climate policies, the definition of European mitigation policies to reach its 2020 goals, and the emergence of new adaptation policies for Europe with special attention to the role of extreme weather events.
The main impact of the ADAM project is to improve the quality and relevance of scientific and stakeholder contributions to the development and evaluation of climate change policy options within the European Commission. This will help the EU to deliver on its current medium-term climate policy objectives and help inform its development of a longer-term climate strategy.
