Speaker
Between September and December 2014, the first group of students from the University Colorado Denver successfully participated in the newly established semester abroad program "Sustainability in Berlin." In addition to two courses on "Environmental Politics and Policy" taught by Prof. Christoph Stefes and a course on "The Global Ecological Crisis" taught by Stephanie Wunder from Ecologic Institute, the students experienced firsthand what sustainability means in practice. During field trips to Berlin, Dessau (Germany), and Copenhagen (Denmark) they learned about alternative concepts for transport, energy, food waste, diets, housing, and climate change adaptation.

Analysis of the Enforcement and Impact of Climate Change Adaptation

September 2013 to August 2014
A system to monitor the implementation of the Swiss adaptation strategy needs to be developed. The system will verify the achievement of the Swiss adaptation strategy’s objectives and ensure optimal adaptation to climate change. The project will support the establishing of the monitoring system and will develop indicators to identify outcomes and impacts of the existing climate adaptation impact model. The indicators will be derived from the adaptation strategy’s objectives and from evaluation questions. Ecologic Institute supports the project lead by INFRAS. The work of Ecologic Institute is mainly based on the experience gained from developing the indicator report for Germany’s adaptation strategy.Read more

The Cultural Context of Climate Change Adaptation

Cases from the U.S. East Coast and the German Baltic Sea Coast
Over 123 million Americans and nearly half of European citizens live on or near their respective coasts. What coastal stakeholders in Europe and the U.S. learn from each other to safeguarding their shores has been explored in a publication by Dr. Grit Martinez from Ecologic Institute in collaboration with colleagues from Duke and Humboldt University.

Klimawandel an der deutschen Ostseeküste: Was relevante Akteure über Anpassungsmaßnahmen denken

Ergebnisse einer Befragung in Politik, Verwaltung und Zivilgesellschaft
Climate change perceptions and attitudes towards climate adaptation measures are critical in determining local actions, their main focus, and the way in which new challenges and measures are approached. The author, Doris Knoblauch, Senior Fellow at Ecologic Institute, comes to the conclusion that coastal protection is predominant among potential climate adaptation measures. Therefore, other measures do not receive enough attention in the German Baltic sea region. Read more

Integrated Water Resource Management and Climate Change Adaptation

October 2014 to October 2016

Countries such as Bangladesh face fundamental threats on their water resources from climate change. Significant demand exists for knowledge how to enhance institutional capacity and effectiveness of water management policies. This project objective is to investigate how Integrated Water Resource Management (IWRM) in different national contexts can enhance the capacity of different societies to adapt to climate change impacts. This project establishes therefore an international network of IWRM and adaptation experts and coordinates research events in six countries. In addition, it aims toRead more

Berücksichtigung von Anpassungsaspekten in der Gewässerentwicklungsplanung aus ökonomischer Sicht

In the future, climate change can impact the effectiveness and costs of water quality improvement measures. This must be taken into account when selecting measures to implement in accordance with the EU Water Framework Directive (WFD). Until now, the consequences of climate change have not been systematically incorporated into the economic analyses called for by the WFD. A new book chapter evaluates the basic approaches used to date, thereby contributing to the necessary discussion on how existing and future programs of measures consider and integrate the consequences of climate change.Read more
