The chapter presents a conceptual model to frame the multiple attributes and the different levels of adaptation that can occur. The importance of ‘green’ or sustainable features in previous adaptations is used to develop a decision making tool for non-experts to undertake a preliminary assessment of adaptation potential. This method for undertaking a preliminary assessment of the potential for adaptations is based on the attributes shown to be most important through analysis of previous adaptations. Finally a case study is presented to demonstrate the application of the model in practice.
