REmote Climate Effects and their Impact on European sustainability, Policy and Trade

The RECEIPT project develops and implements a novel stakeholder driven storytelling concept that maps representative connections between European socio-economic activities and remote climatic hazards, in order to provide relevant and quantitative information on the European risks from remote global climatic features.   In particular, RECEIPT has the following key objectives: Mapping of global hotspots of remote areas with climate features relevant for Europe, using state-of- the-art climate and climate-impact databases; Science-based sectoral storylines co-developed with societal partners, describing the impacts of remote climate change on European food security, the financial sector, international development, commodities and European coastal infrastructure; Assessment of European socio-economic impacts along each of the selected storylines under different future climatic conditions, including high-end climate scenarios; A robust synthesis of the storyline results into a pan-European socioeconomic risk assessment focusing on the difference between high-end and moderate climate change conditions; Innovative web-based concepts for visualizing potential impacts of remote drivers and mapping risk mitigation options

Stepping Up Knowledge Exchange Between Climate Adaptation Platforms

Climate adaptation gains in importance, and the Paris Agreement 2015 calls on Parties to strengthen cooperation on enhancing action on adaptation. This, along with recognition that policymakers require high-quality and relevant information to support decision-making, has led many countries to establish web-based climate adaptation platforms whilst other countries are now actively planning such platforms

Cooperation of cities and local companies for climate change adaptation

The overall goal of the LIFE-CLIMCOOP project is to develop, test and demonstrate collective actions between a city government and a multinational company to reduce local climate risks and enhance joint climate change adaptation to the benefit of both parties. The pilot demonstration will particularly explore water-saving opportunities in the upstream parts of the River Saj in Hungary

SOLSTICE - Enabling Societal Transformation in the Face of Climate Change

SOLSTICE is a joint transnational call for proposals.
