CC-IAM has been involved in several projects in the domains of climate change impact assessment, adaptation and mitigation strategies and development of downscaled climate scenarios.
The group brings together scientists from several disciplines who conduct trans-disciplinary research on both a national and international level.

The group’s objectives fall within five main domains:

  • Impacts assessment: to conduct pioneering research on climate change impacts at local, national, and international levels on water resources, coastal zones, forests, biodiversity, agriculture, public health, tourism, energy demand, and transports;
  • Adaptation: to contribute towards national and global research on adaptation to climate change;
  • Networking: to establish national and international networks in our research areas;
  • Dissemination: to disseminate information on climate change impacts, adaptation and mitigation to stakeholders at all levels.

CC-IAM :: Centro de Impactos das Alterações climáticas: Adaptação e Modelação

O CCIAM (Centre for Climate Change Impacts, Adaptation and Modelling) é um grupo de investigação da Faculdade de Ciências de Lisboa integrado no laboratório S.I.M (Sistemas, Instrumentaçização e Modelação).

O CCIAM reúne cientistas de diversas disciplinas que desenvolvem trabalhos inter-disciplinares a nível nacional e internacional. Estudamos os impactos das alterações climáticas em áreas como a saúde, o turismo, os recursos hídricos ou a biodiversidade.

Estes estudos permitem-nos desenvolver estratégias de adaptação e de mitigação às alterações climáticas a diversas escalas geográficas.
