CAScading Climate risks: towards ADaptive and resilient European Societies (CASCADES)


CASCADES seeks to understand the conditions under which climate risks propagate beyond their geographical, sectoral, and temporal location in ways that may affect European stability and cohesion. Its main aim is to identify the policy leverage points that can help the EU to adapt and respond to such cascading climate risks. The project will implement various methodologies – biophysical climate impact modelling, economic modelling of trade and financial networks, data integration methods, qualitative approaches including hotspot case study analysis and policy simulations involving decision-makers and business operators.
