Sometimes, climate change impacts overcome our ability to manage them with mitigation and adaptation strategies. The 7th edition of the INQUIMUS workshop series, supported by the CMCC Foundation, is looking for new ideas to evaluate and face climate-related risks that go beyond adaptation limits. The call for abstracts is open until May 15, 2020.
Climate change is accelerating and in combination with other drivers (exposure, vulnerability) is increasingly turning risks more dynamic and harder to assess with standard approaches. Moreover, there is growing need for tackling ‘residual climate-related risks’, defined as potential negative impacts after all feasible mitigation and adaptation measures have been implemented.
The call for abstracts for the 7th edition of the INQUIMUS workshop series, this year focused on “Transformational risk management and Loss & Damage” aims to identify suitable approaches for assessing climate-related residual risks to provide decision-makers with reliable information, indicators and effective strategies.
INQUIMUS (latin for “we say”) is a workshop series aiming to provide exchange, new inspiration and generative dialogues, integrating quantitative and qualitative assessment methodologies for multi-dimensional phenomena. This edition of the workshop will take place in Laxenburg, Austria, on December 1-3, 2020 and is organized by the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA), the Department of Geoinformatics – Z_GIS at the University of Salzburg, Austria and Eurac Research European Academy of Bozen with the support of the CMCC Foundation and Ca’ Foscari University of Venice.
Scientists and practitioners from different fields will work together to understand the needs of decision-makers for comprehensively assessing and managing climate-related risks that may lead beyond adaptation limits (known as Loss and Damage). Workshop participants will identify the gaps in existing risk assessment methodologies and highlight experiences and case studies showcasing the spectrum of risk management options, trying to understand how risk science has to transform itself.
The call for papers is open until May 15, 2020.
