In 1999, the UNFCCC Secretariat took a first step towards disseminating information on methods and tools when it produced a report entitled Compendium of Decision Tools to Evaluate Strategies for Adaptation to Climate Change. Since then, the adaptation assessment process has changed considerably and in some ways grown more sophisticated. The UNFCCC Secretariat has subsequently updated the original compendium and broadened its scope. An updated compendium entitled Compendium of methods and tools to evaluate impacts of, and vulnerability and adaptation to, climate change was launched in 2004. The current revision of the compendium was undertaken as part of the Nairobi work programme on impacts, vulnerability and adaptation to climate change.
