This Handbook was developed to assist users of an Excel-spreadsheet based tool (CATLoG) developed for local governments to compare and prioritise investment in climate change adaptation. The decision support tool enables users to analyse and prepare for extreme events. Users of the tool can conduct sensitivity tests, and examine the impacts of uncertain parameters, ranging from climate change impacts to discount rates. A combination of quantitative (cost-benefit analysis) and qualitative (multi-criteria analysis) methods are used within the tool to support decision making regarding climate change adaptation. A report on the research project that developed this tool can be found here.
