Climate action

The aim of the activity of “Climate action” is to develop and assess innovative, cost-effective and sustainable adaptation and mitigation measures.

Mitigation: Improve the understanding of climate change and support mitigation policies

Better understanding of the causes and evolution of climate change and more accurate climate projections are needed. Papers should especially address the environmental and socio-economic risks, opportunities and impacts of climate change mitigation options.

Adaptation: Assess impacts, vulnerabilities and develop innovative cost-effective adaptation

There is incomplete knowledge on the ability of society and the economy to adapt to climate change. Papers could address the impacts and growing risks for ecosystems and human health stemming from climate change, cost-effective adaptation responses to climate change and conflicts and synergies of adaptation and other policy choices.
