Climate Change Adaptation

Climate Change Adaptation 

Problems deriving from present and future impacts of climate change have increasing relevance for global societies and economies. Much has been done for mitigation, in terms of research and policies, with the aim of limiting emissions and controlling the dynamics of global warming and its consequences in terms of direct and indirect impacts.

Historically, less attention has been dedicated to adaptation, i.e. to the set of measures and actions needed immediately and in the future to limit the impacts that already act on natural and socio-economic systems.

This programme aims to deepen the understanding of adaptation mechanisms, focusing in particular on the development of innovative integrated modelling tools, especially at the micro level.

Being based in Venice, the programme starts from local adaption issues, mainly linked to the prospect of the progressive rise of the average sea level, and then broadens the view towards similar situations at international level, to consolidate the development of methods and tools that may have general validity and broad application potential.
