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 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.
