RECEIPT – REmote Climate Effects and their Impact on European sustainability, Policy and Trade

RECEIPT project develops and implements a novel stakeholder driven storytelling concept that maps representative connections between European socio-economic activities and remote climatic hazards, in order to provide relevant and quantitative information on the European risks from remote global climatic features.

48 months from 01/09/2019 to 31/08/2023

General objectives

RECEIPT has the following key objectives:

  • Mapping of global hotspots of remote areas with climate features relevant for Europe, using state-of- the-art climate and climate-impact databases;
  • Science-based sectoral storylines co-developed with societal partners, describing the impacts of remote climate change on: European food security, the financial sector, international development, commodities and European coastal infrastructure;
  • Assessment of European socio-economic impacts along each of the selected storylines under different future climatic conditions, including high-end climate scenarios;
  • A robust synthesis of the storyline results into a pan-European socioeconomic risk assessment focusing on the difference between high-end and moderate climate change conditions;
  • Innovative web-based concepts for visualizing potential impacts of remote drivers and mapping risk mitigation options.

CMCC role
WP5 leadership, WP8 co-leadership CMCC leads the WP5 – International cooperation and development, focusing on EU external actions


  • Storylines development – plausible scenarios of Europe can be affected by climate change impacts materialized outside of the EU.
  • Sectoral risk assessment – analysis of remote affects of climate change and their propagation through agricultural import/export, food security, international trade, impaired coastal infrastructure.

Expected results

  • Better understanding of how the EU is exposed to remote climate change, improved climate risk assessment and policy recommendations how to counteract these risks,
  • Improved risk assessment and management tools such as INFORM Risk index used to inform EU internal and external policies
