ADaptation And Mitigation strategies supporting European Climate Policy (ADAM)

This object has been archived because its content is outdated. You can still access it as legacy


ADAM supports the EU in the development of post-2012 global climate policies, the definition of European mitigation policies to reach its 2020 goals, and the emergence of new adaptation policies for Europe with special attention to the role of extreme weather events. The main impact of the ADAM project is to improve the quality and relevance of scientific and stakeholder contributions to the development and evaluation of climate change policy options within the European Commission. This will help the EU to deliver on its current medium-term climate policy objectives and help inform its development of a longer-term climate strategy. The core objectives of ADAM are: - To assess the extent to which existing climate policies can achieve a socially and economically tolerable transition to a world with a global climate no warmer than 2°C above pre-industrial levels. - To develop a portfolio of longer-term policy options that could contribute to the EU’s 2°C target and targets for adaptation. - To develop the requirements for climate change appraisal in different contexts to enhance the emergence of innovative mitigation and adaptation strategies. The ADAM work programme is structured around four overarching domains; -Scenarios -Adaptation -Mitigation -Policy Appraisal
