Although it might be fair to say that ICLEI was somewhat of a latecomer to the adaptation issue, over the past couple of years, it's various regional entities have been actively working to make up for lost time. ICLEI Oceania (i.e., Australia) released it's Adaptation Toolkit in 2008. More recently, ICLEI Canada developed guidance for Canada's local governments for undertaking climate change adaptation plans. The overlap between ICLEI Canada's guidance and ICLEI Oceania's toolkit is rather substantial (but then such overlap exists across the multitude of guidance instruments now available). Both efforts also take the approach of linking the guidance to a series of worksheets and templates for adaptation planners to help walk them through the steps.
