Research Area: Regional Impacts and Adaptation Strategies (RIAS)

Speaker: Fred Hattermann


Climate impact assessment is emerging as a highly important and relevant field of research. One important area of study is the interaction between global and regional systems with a focus on the challenges of adaptation strategies in the context of climate change. Our goal is to study the climate-change-related impacts in Germany and other affected regions worldwide. The results are used to help deriving adaptation and mitigation strategies.

Research Questions:RF2

  • How to achieve regional energy, food and water security under climate change?
  • How to improve robustness of impact assessments?
  • What are human dimensions of climate change in most effected regions?
  • What are possible chances for a regional carbon free development?
