The National Roadmap for Adaptation 2100 project - Portuguese Territorial Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment for XXI Century (RNA 2100), defines narratives of the evolution of vulnerabilities and impacts of climate change in Portugal. It also assesses the need for investment for adaptation and the socio-economic costs of inaction.

The RNA 2100 supports and responds to public policy exercises to adapt to climate change at various levels of territorial intervention. Because it is also supported by initiatives to disseminate its results, including to the general public, the RNA 2100 has the ambition to become an important tool to raise awareness on climate change adaptation.
