Among the messages from discussions during the ECCA 2019 conference, a number of research gaps have emerged which are of critical importance for future research planning in Europe and internationally.
In addressing complex problems with research programmes, policy initiatives, or practical interventions, there is a need to consider the Legacy of the work: what will a project or programme leave behind?
Why should the EU worry about the weather? Our policy brief explores the choices facing the European Union and how best to deal with the impacts of extreme weather risks.
Fires can lead to the contamination of surface and groundwater resources with suspended sediments, metals, organic compounds and nutrients. Our policy brief highlights research gaps that could improve risk assessment and management.
This policy brief argues that technology can helps us to connect and share knowledge across the CCA and DRR communities, through semantic tagging and the forthcoming PLACARD Connectivity Hub.
Foresight can be a valuable tool in both climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction, as well a useful method to integrate the two approaches.
A brief to highlight the complex nature of environmental challenges and make recommendations for the integration of ecosystem-based approaches within CCA and DRR science, policy and practice.
