With the support of CINEA, DG RTD has just published “EU research contribution to IPCC working group II on impacts, adaptation and vulnerability : providing solutions, enabling resilient development”. The publication highlights the contribution of EU-funded projects to the IPCC Working Group II report "Climate Change 2022: Impacts, Adaptation and Vulnerability"

The publication features 22 projects, 10 of which are ran by CINEA C1 - Projects COACCH, EUCP, EXHAUSTION, CASCADES, RECEIPT, XAIDA, ARSINOE, MED-GOLD, DOWN2EARTH, CONFER.


The Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is the most authoritative source of knowledge about the changing climate. The IPCC Working Group II report Climate Change 2022: Impacts, Adaptation and

Vulnerability warns that the world faces unavoidable, multiple climate hazards over the next two decades, and risks for society and nature are set to increase.

The European Commission presented in 2021 its new EU Strategy on adaptation to climate change, setting out how the EU can adapt to the unavoidable climate impacts. Through the  Framework Programmes for Research and Innovation (Horizon 2020 and Horizon Europe), the EU has already made significant contributions to improve our understanding of the changing  climate and provide innovative adaptation solutions. Building on the release of the IPCC Working  Group II report "Climate Change 2022: Impacts, Adaptation and Vulnerability", the new  publication by DG RTD puts a spotlight on the contribution of EU-funded projects to pushing  the boundaries of world-class adaptation science as a key ingredient towards climate resilient  development and just transition for all.
