Transformational and Robust AdaptatioN to water Scarcity and ClimatE chaNge under Deep uncertainty

TRANSCEND (Transformational and Robust Adaptation to Water Scarcity and Climate Change under Deep Uncertainty) is a Horizon Europe research project that identifies ways of managing water when its availability is low, and the uncertainty of cascading effects is high.  Worldwide, water resources management is increasingly challenged by water scarcity and climate change, which can trigger and aggravate other ecological (e

Aligning Climate-ADAPT with the 2021 EU Adaptation Policy Context

Thermal Comfort Indices - Universal Thermal Climate Index, 1979-2020

Context The universal thermal climate index (UTCI) is a human biometeorology parameter that is used to assess the linkages between outdoor environment and human well‐being. Thermal comfort indices describe how the human body experiences atmospheric conditions, specifically air temperature, humidity, wind and radiation

The Lancet Countdown: Tracking Progress on Health and Climate Change

The Lancet Countdown: Tracking Progress on Health and Climate Change is an international research collaboration that monitors and reports annually on the relationship between health and climate, and its implications for national governments. It was launched following the 2015 Lancet Commission on Health and Climate Change, which concluded that unmitigated climate change would undermine 50 years of public health gains, but that responding to climate change could represent “the greatest global health opportunity of the 21st century

European Health Emergency Preparedness and Response Authority

The European Health Emergency Preparedness and Response (HERA) was created in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic, It was launched as a new European Commission Directorate-General on 16 September 2021. HERA is a key pillar of the European Health Union announced by President von der Leyen in her 2021 State of the Union address and will fill a gap in the EU's health emergency response and preparedness

Annual Highest High Water, 2070-2100

Context The annual highest high water index informs an understanding of European coastal hydrodynamics under the impact of climate change. It provides added value for various coastal sectors and studies such as port, shipping, and coastal management with particular relvance to coastal flooding

Thermal Comfort Indices - Mean Radiant Temperature, 1979-2020

Context The mean radiant temperature (MRT) is a human biometeorology parameter that is used to assess the linkages between the outdoor environment and human well‐being. Thermal comfort indices describe how the human body experiences atmospheric conditions, specifically air temperature, humidity, wind and radiation

Boosting adaptation to climate change: National and EU level knowledge and tools for Bulgaria

Co-organised with the Bulgarian Ministry of Environment and Water in Bulgaria, this webinar offered an overview of available adaptation knowledge, guidance, and tools on knowledge platforms at national level in Bulgaria and at the EU level (Climate-ADAPT) such as high-quality climate data, an urban adaptation support tool, adaptation policy information and case studies. The webinar also provided a reflection on how the available information is being used and which knowledge gaps need to be addressed at EU and the country level

TRends In Global Governance and Europe’s Role

The ultimate objectives of TRIGGER are to provide EU institutions with knowledge and tools to enhance their actorness, effectiveness and influence in global governance; and to develop new ways to harness the potential of public engagement and participatory foresight in complex governance decisions, thereby also tackling emerging trends such as nationalism, regionalism and protectionism. These overall objectives are designed to be measurable, realistic and achievable within the 36-month duration of the project

Reducing climate based health risks in blue environments: Adapting to the climate change impacts on coastal pathogens

BlueAdapt brings together an interdisciplinary team of biologists, climate scientists, economists, epidemiologists and public health experts to investigate and quantify the future health risks associated with selected coastal pathogens. BlueAdapt will provide tools to assess the impacts of policy responses and communicate the results to a wide audience, including both policymakers and the public

Climate Monitoring and Decision Support Framework for Sand Fly-borne Diseases Detection and Mitigation with COst-benefit and Climate-policy MeasureS

CLIMOS aims to assist mitigation of climate- and climate change-induced emergence, transmission and spread of vector-borne and zoonotic pathogens based on Eco-health and One Health approaches. This will be achieved by quantifying climate and environmental-related drivers of sand fly vector populations and the sand fly-borne diseases (SFBDs) across Europe

Climate mainstreaming locally in the Baltic Sea Region

Climate mainstreaming locally in the Baltic Sea Region (CliMaLoc) is a project which aims to foster climate adaptation among the small and medium municipalities in the Baltic Sea Region. The project aims to make best use of existing knowledge and capacity in the region and Europe to support the exchange of best practices that will encourage municipalities to take steps towards climate adaptation even when resources and skills are scarce

Collaborative Knowledge Exchange Platform for Land-Sea Integration

COASTAL supports strategic coastal-rural planning by problem-driven engagement of stakeholders, including administrations, NGOs and business entrepreneurs. These interacted to identify problems and opportunities, design mental models for holistic solutions, and test scientific concepts

Do no harm: healthcare professionals address sustainability and climate change

This report, by Economist Impact, covers the intersection of climate change and healthcare systems in Europe, the health impacts of climate change, and how healthcare professionals are responding to climate change and improving the system’s sustainability. The study includes results of (i) a literature review of how healthcare systems in France, Germany and the UK are responding to climate change and on the role of healthcare professionals, (ii) a survey among 75  hospitals doctors and 75 nurses from France, Germany and the UK, and (iii) interviews with  experts from government, hospitals, medical professional associations and NGOs
