The final output from CLIMSAVE is the Integrated Assessment Platform which allows stakeholders or interested citizens to analyse climate change impacts, vulnerability and adaptation options themselves. To access the Integrated Assessment Platform, please click on the "I.A.P." menu. A demonstration of the Platform which illustrates its functionality can be seen here. The final Platform will also be accessible from the Climate-Adapt website from late 2013. A number of other outputs have been produced from the project as follows:
Policy brief for Europe summarising the final results of the project
Policy brief for Scotland summarising the final results of the project
Powerpoint presentations
CLIMSAVE publications
          CLIMSAVE Special Issue in Climatic Change
          Other peer-reviewed papers
          Books or book sections
