We cordially invite you to submit an abstract to our session at EGU General Assembly, 23-28 April 2023 (online/Vienna).
FMI and GERICS are co-convening a session on “Adaptation knowledge and solutions for a climate resilient Europe: from science to governance”.

Please find more details about the session, and the abstract submission link

Europe needs practical solutions to address and manage the current and emerging impacts of climate change. This session focuses on the key European adaptation challenges, and on the strategies needed to combine European research, policy, and investment for an efficient and future-resilient ground-level delivery. It will review and build on the key findings from IPCC AR6 WGII Chapter 13: Europe.

We invite discussion on how resilient Europe is to climate change now at global warming of 1°C, and what are the solution spaces and adaptation options for climate resilient development. Topic would include:

  • Marine, coastal, terrestrial, and freshwater ecosystems and their services
  • Water (flooding, coastal erosion, freshwater scarcity)
  • Food, fibre, and other ecosystem products
  • Cities and infrastructure
  • Health, wellbeing, and communities
  • Vulnerable livelihoods and social inequality
  • Inter-regional impacts

We are looking for contributions that would be accessible also for non-experts and policy-oriented stakeholders.
Deadline for submission: 10 January 2023, 13:00 CET
