ISO 14090, High Level Framework for Adaptation
ISO/TC 207/SC 7/WG 9
This international standard will describe a high-level framework to provide principles, requirements and guidance for activities relating to adaptation to climate change including general, high-level guidance on the integration of adaptation within or across organisations, understanding vulnerabilities and uncertainties.
The basic concepts and terminology in this standard may be applied within public and private organisations, for such functions as 'policy', 'strategy', and 'operations'.
This standard will be applicable at different levels of scale, for example, organisations, communities and regions, as well as for different sectors, and can support more specific adaptation standards.
