Climate sciences and responses for the transformation towards climate neutrality

Transition to a climate-neutral and resilient society and economy enabled through advanced climate science, pathways and responses to climate change (mitigation and adaptation) and behavioural transformations.

Destination 1 fosters climate science and thus helps to identify effective and efficient pathways and responses to climate change. The activities implemented under this section will enable the transition to a climate-neutral and resilient society and economy through improving the knowledge of the Earth system and the ability to predict and project its changes under different natural and socio-economic drivers, including a better understanding of society’s response and behavioural changes, and allowing a better estimation of the impacts of climate change and the design and evaluation of solutions and pathways for climate change mitigation and adaptation and related social transformation.

The overall expected impact of this Destination is to contribute through advancing knowledge and providing solutions in the following areas:

  • Earth system science
  • Pathways to climate neutrality
  • Climate change adaptation including climate services
  • Social science for climate action
  • Climate-ecosystem interactions
