Dynamic Interactive Vulnerability Assessment Tool
Entry ID: NL_DIVA

[ Update this Record ]


Summary
Abstract: The Dynamic Interactive Vulnerability Assessment (DIVA) comprises four major components:

-A detailed global database with biophysical and socio-economic coastal data;

-Global and regionalised climate and socio-economic scenarios until the year 2500;

-An integrated model, enabling the interaction between modules that assess biophysical and
socio-economic impacts and the potential effects and costs of adaptation;

-A graphical user interface for selecting data and scenarios, running model simulations and
analysing the results.

DIVA allows its users to produce consistent quantitative information:

-On a range of coastal impact and adaptation indicators;

-For user-selected climate and socio-economic scenarios and coastal adaptation options;

-On national, regional and global scales, covering all coastal nations.

The information produced by DIVA will enable its users:

-To explore the effects of climate change on coastal environments and societies;

-To explore the costs and benefits of coastal adaptation options;

-To set priorities for international co-operation with respect to climate change and
development;

-To use results for further scientific and policy analysis.

DIVA is being made suitable to become a component of a distributed integrated assessment model. DIVA is recommended for carrying out trial runs and exploring broad coastal adaptation strategies. The resolution of DIVA does not support analysis for operational coastal management and planning, as this requires a differently scaled approach.
