DownScaling CLImate imPACTs and decarbonisation pathways in EU islands, and enhancing socioeconomic and non-market evaluation of Climate Change for Europe, for 2050 and beyond (SOCLIMPACT)

Description:

SOCLIMPACT aims to provide advances in the economic evaluation of climate-induced impacts, and in climate and economic models, allowing downscaled projections of complex impact chains, and facilitating the resilience capacity of vulnerable lands. In particular, the project focuses on the modelling of downscaled climate change effects and their socioeconomic impacts in European islands and archipelagos for the period 2030–2100, in the context of the EU Blue Economy sectors, and assess corresponding decarbonisation and adaptation pathways, thus complementing current available projections for Europe, and nourishing actual economic models with non-market assessment.

SOCLIMPACT will facilite climate-related policy decision making for Blue Growth, by ranking and mapping the more appropriate mitigation and adaptation strategies, and delivering accurate information to policy makers, practitioners and other relevant stakeholders about likely impact chains and costs and benefits of possible strategies to implement efficient measures.
