Through its expert’s panel, the ¨Regional Exchange Information System (REIS) is open to provide solutions in support EU islands and outermost regions, and mainstream actions and methodologies for climate change research to coastal zones of the European Union and beyond. Hence, the REIS platform offers a huge opportunity for all islands and coastal areas to discuss intensively and to establish a benchmark for Adaptation and Blue Growth.

Through its Adaptation Support Tool for Islands, the REIS platform  allows stakeholders to access the specific knowledge generated by Soclimpact project, regarding physical impacts, non-market and socio-economic consequences of climate change for 12 EU islands case studies (Azores, Madeira, The Balearic Islands, The Canary Islands, Sicily, Sardinia, Corsica, West Indies, Malta, Cyprus, Crete and Fehmarn). It also proposes alternative viable adaptation pathways that are framed by the geographic, economic, and social context of each island and is a result of stakeholders’ consultation process carried out in these islands.
