TROPICO project brief is available on ICT tools in internal policy design in Hungary

April 1, 2019

The brief titled 'The National Adaptation Geo-Information System and its Effect on Collaboration and Policy Design in Hungary' is written by CPS researchers Andras Molnar and Sara Svensson.

Aims and goals

Observed changes in climate conditions and the political processes triggered by these changes have led to demands for local, regional and national adaptation strategies. The fulfillment of UN Sustainable Development Goals also requires strategies at different territorial levels. In Hungary, the data and evidence needed to develop strategies have been fragmented across different institutions or not been available at all. NAGiS was conceived as a way to use new technologies to overcome old barriers by the exchange of information and knowledge. It was specifically developed to assist policy-making and strategy-building processes in climate change adaptation and related fields. NAGiS was developed between 2013 and 2016, when the tool was launched, and has been expanded since then by continuing to add more data to the tool.
