COACCH – CO-designing the Assessment of Climate CHange costs

COACCH (CO-designing the Assessment of Climate CHange costs) is a project funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme and carried out by a consortium of 14 European organisations. COACCH will develop an innovative science-practice and integrated approach to co-design and co-deliver an improved downscaled assessment of the risks and costs of climate change in Europe, working with end users from research, business, investment, and policy making communities throughout the project.

EFLIP – Economic impacts of flood risk in Lombardy and innovative risk mitigation policy

Lombardy, Italy’s economic engine, is particularly vulnerable to flood hazard risk, the consequences of which are likely to affect the national growth and stability. EFLIP will contribute to a better appreciation of indirect and induced effects of flood risk on economic growth and social cohesion by analyzing micro- and macro-economic consequences of flood risk in Lombardy.


ETC/CCA – European Topic Centre on Climate Change impacts, vulnerability and Adaptation (2019-2021)

The ETC/CCA is a Consortium of European institutions that supply thematic expertise to the European Environment Agency (EEA) working at the interface between science and policy, in support to policy development and implementation in the area of climate change impacts, vulnerability and adaptation across Europe.

PEERS – Peer Review of the Disaster Risk Management

The objective of PEERS is to implement, over a period of 24 months (2020-2022) a programme of peer reviews targeting a maximum of four countries wishing to have their disaster risk management/civil protection system reviewed. The programme will allow for peer reviews of a country’s civil protection/disaster risk management system and policies and/or specific aspects/issues of civil protection/disaster risk management put forward by the reviewed country (e.g. with focus on particular types of risks and/or certain geographical areas, risk assessment, risk management capability assessments, legislative framework for disaster risk management, prevention and/or preparedness strategies, etc.). The peer review process will also foster policy dialogue, improve coherence and steer progress in critical areas for the EU cooperation on civil protection and disaster risk management.


SAFERPLACES – Improved assessment of pluvial, fluvial and coastal flood hazards and risks in European cities as a mean to build safer and resilient communities

SAFERPLACES employs innovative climate, hydrological and hydraulic, topographic and economic modelling techniques to assess pluvial, fluvial and coastal flood hazard and risk in urban environments under current and future climates. The service is designed to support the identification and assessment of flood risk mitigation measures and plans, inform climate adaptation and disaster risk reduction strategies, and help to foster multi-stakeholder agreements and partnership for resilience building. SAFERPLACES builds upon the successfully completed 2017 Climate KIC Pathfinder project ‘PLACES – Pluvial flood hazard and risk assessment and mitigation in European cities’.

SAM-PS – Study on Adaptation Modelling

DG Climate Action awarded this tender to a group pf 4 partners lead by CMCC. SAM-PS project focuses in a broad and comprehensive manner on adaptation modelling. Its overall objective is to support better-informed decision-making on adaptation, which is among the priority areas of the EU Strategy on adaptation to climate change.


SAVEMEDCOASTS-2 – Sea Level Rise Scenarios along the Mediterranean Coasts

This project aims to respond to the need for prevention from natural disasters in Mediterranean coastal caused by the combined impact of sea level rise (SLR) and land subsidence (LS) in the major river deltas, lagoons and reclamation areas previously identified in the SAVEMEDCOASTS project, being the coastal zones most exposed to flooding of the Mediterranean region.


TEACHER-CE – Title CE joinT Efforts to increase water management Adaptation to climate CHanges in central EuRope

TEACHER-CE intends to integrate and harmonize results of previously or ongoing projects funded within INTERREG CE Program and/or other European initiatives. The main territorial challenge to be addressed concerns the development of effective adaptation processes and prevention of weather-induced risks for water management in Central Europe, where the effects of climate changes can be already clearly observed and, in future years, could have strong impact at territorial level


TRITON – Development of management Tools and diRectives for immediate protection of bIodiversity in coasTal areas affected by sea erOsion and establishment of appropriate eNvironmental control systems

Through an integrated set of actions based on research, capacity building and training Triton seeks to propose and support the adoption of common Cross Border Operational Plan for Integrated Coastal Zone Management in Italy and Greece. By improving the predictive and scenario-analysis capacity, the project will help to forecast future coastal erosion trends and risks, building a robust knowledge base for decision-making on coastline management on both sides of Adriatic-Ionian Sea.
