Summer Academy: World risk and adaptation futures

A sound understanding of future trajectories in environmental and climatic risks and especially the related socio-economic vulnerabilities is of key importance for science, policy and practice alike. Yet, such knowledge and the methodological toolkit to develop it remains strikingly poor to date. To overcome that gap we initiated the Summer Academy on world risk and adaptation futures and invite experts to discuss this challenge and find solutions.

A leading global challenge today centers on the capacity to make appropriate decisions that will navigate countries and communities towards a safe, sustainable future. Uncertainty about future risk trends plays a central role in whether or not policy makers and practitioners can make decisions that help society adapt to climate risks and capture the opportunities ahead. >mehr
