European Topic Centre on Climate Change impacts, vulnerability and Adaptation
01.01.2019 - 31.12.2021
European Topic Centres are high level expert consortia, which are contracted by the European Environment Agency (EEA) to support them in their thematic work on Environmental Monitoring.
The mission of the European Topic Centre on Climate Change impacts, vulnerability and Adaptation (ETC/CCA) is to assist the EEA in informing the EU policy developments which are relevant for the area of climate change impacts, vulnerability and adaptation (CCIVA) and disaster risk prevention across Europe, including assisting the EEA member countries.
Eurac Research is full member of ETC/CCA and contributes with its expertise in Climate Risk Assessments. One of the concrete tasks in 2020 will be to define recommendations for an innovative format for a climate impact report for Europe. Further activities will include proposal for climate impact indicators and methodological support in climate risk assessments on the European level. Eurac can profit from its long experience in climate risk assessments and its role as policy advisors with various environmental agencies and other international institutions such as GIZ and UNEP.
