1 FP7 Research in the field of climate change vulnerability, impacts and adaptation (a brief update for the Environment Programme ) Wolfram Schrimpf DG Research and Innovation Deputy Head of the Unit « Climate change and natural hazards »

2 Projects proposed for funding from the 6th Call of the FP7 Environment Programme (not exhaustive) Topic ENV Strategies, costs and impacts of adaptation to climate change - FP7-ENV-2012-two-stage ____________ ToPDAd Tool-supported policy development for regional adaptation RAMSES Reconciling Adaptation, Mitigation and Sustainable Development for Cities BASE Bottom-up Climate Adaptation Strategies towards a Sustainable Europe

3 ToPDAd Tool-supported policy development for regional adaptation (under negotiation) Coordinator: Teknologian Tutkimuskeskus VTT / Finland Key words: Development next generation of socio-economic tools and methods supporting regional decision making; key socio-economic sectors (energy, transport, tourism, health); bottom-up assessment; stakeholder involvement

4 RAMSES Reconciling Adaptation, Mitigation and Sustainable Development for Cities (under negotiation) Coordinator: Potsdam Institut f ü r Klimaforschung PIK / Germany Key words: Systematic cost assessment of adaptation/sustainable development strategies, impact function, response function, EU and international cities, bottom-up/top-down approach systematic stakeholder involvement

5 BASE Bottom-up Climate Adaptation Strategies towards a Sustainable Europe (under negotiation) Coordinator: Aarhus Universitet / Denmark Key words: improve adaptation knowledge availability, integration and utilization; costs and benefits of adaptation strategies at local, regional and national scales; integrating bottom-up and top-down approaches; policy support; attention to sectors of high social and economic importance; case studies, stakeholder involvement

6 Towards the 7th Call of the FP7 Environment Programme Topic Areas relevant for climate change impacts, vulnerability and adaptation: Impacts of higher-end scenarios Better quantification of impacts and vulnerabilities associated with a range of high-end scenarios; social and economic risks, opportunities, costs and benefits linked to different adaptation and mitigation pathways; recognizing the inherent uncertainties in long-term projections; synergies and trade offs; representative concentration pathways; different scales; key economic, social and environmental sectors Economics of adaptation to climate-change Develop and apply new and/or improve existing methodological frameworks for assessing the costs, benefits and effectiveness of climate change adaptation policies and measures in Europe at different levels; reduction of uncertainties; increased comparability across different time horizons (short-, medium- and long-term) and geographical scales; monetary and non-monetary costs and benefits of Adaptation More information at:
