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.
