  1. EC Research in the field of climate change2nd EIONET workshop on climate change vulnerabilityimpacts and adaptationEEA, Copenhagen, 9-10 October 2008 Wolfram Schrimpf Climate Change & Environmental Risks Unit Research Directorate General European Commission wolfram.schrimpf@ec.europa.eu

  2. Contribution to understand Earth system functioning, the origin and impacts of climate change and to predict its future evolution Guidance and support to EU’s international commitments and EU policies Basis for effective mitigation and adaptation measures European Research

  3. Climate change research is needed at EU level in order to: Support EU International commitments and initiatives such as: Kyoto and Montreal Protocols, and post-Kyoto Climate Initiatives UN Conventions (Desertification, Biological diversity,..) International Strategy for Disaster Reduction World Summit on Sustainable Development Contribute to: Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS) International Programmes (e.g. IGBP, WCRP) Contribute to EU policies such as: Communication to limit global warming to less than 2°C beyond pre-industrial times 6th Environmental Action Plan and associated Thematic Strategies European Climate Change Programme (ECCP) Action Plans on Environmental Technologies and Environment and Health Water Framework Directive Communication on droughts and water scarcity EU Flood Action Programme Working Groups under the CIS (´climate change impacts on water)

  4. FP6 (2002-2006) Sustainable development, global change and ecosystems Thematic sub-priority: Global change and ecosystems IMPACT AND MECHANISMS OF GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS AND ATMOSPHERIC POLLUTANTS ON CLIMATE, OZONE DEPLETION AND CARBON SINKS • Carbon and Nitrogen Cycles: Sources and Sinks • Atmospheric Pollutants and their Regional Impacts • Climate dynamics and variability DYNAMITE, ENHANCE, EPICA-MIS, MILLENIUM • Stratospheric ozone and climate interactions • Prediction of climatic change and its impacts AMMA, CECILIA, CIRCE, CLARIS, CLAVIER, ENSEMBLES, WATCH, FLOODSITE • Adaptation and mitigation strategies ADAM, SERPEC-CC, TETRIS, TOCSIN

  5. Dynamite Project The project is aiming at further develop the understanding of the fundamental modes of the climate system, in particular the coupled ocean-atmosphere system which is essential to improve the detection, attribution and prediction of global and regional climate change Duration: 2005 - 2007 http://dynamite.nersc.no Understanding the Dynamics of the Coupled Climate System

  6. CIRCE Project The project will predict and quantify physical impacts of climate change and evaluate the consequences of climate change for the society and the economy of the populations located in the Mediterranean area. Adaptation and mitigation strategies will be identified in collaboration with regional stakeholders. Duration: 2007 - 2010 http://www.circeproject.eu Climate Change and Variability: the Mediterranean Environment

  7. ADAM Project The project will lead to a better understanding of the synergies, trade-offs and conflicts that exist between adaptation and mitigation policies at multiple scales. ADAM will support EU policy development in the next stage of the development of the Kyoto Protocol, in particular negotiations around a post-2012 global climate policy regime, and will inform the emergence of new adaptation strategies for Europe. Duration: 2006 - 2009 http://www.adamproject.eu Adaptation and Mitigation Strategies: Supporting European Climate Policy
