In an interconnected world, Europe’s economy and society will be increasingly affected by climate change impacts that occur beyond its borders. This Horizon 2020 project explores how this will affect Europe’s economy, finance and policy. More
Loss and Damage (L&D) has gained traction since it became apparent that climate change would lead to impacts that cannot, or will not, be tackled by mitigation or adaptation. While current research mainly focuses on L&D in the Global South, our objective is to provide policy-relevant scientific insights from the perspective of Austria, a Global North country. More
Disaster risk reduction (DRR) investments not only protect productive assets and lives, but if implemented appropriately, they could yield a number of additional benefits that could enhance well-being and resilience. While this fact is not yet sufficiently recognized by a wider policy audience, the DRR Co-benefit project aims to bridge this knowledge gap by quantifying the direct and indirect benefits of DRR investments.

The research and development project analyzes up scaling options for water and land management practices for the resilient and sustainable intensification of agricultural production and food systems in the extended Lake Victoria Basin. More
A projected increase in climate extreme events and an increasingly inter-dependent food supply system pose a threat to global food security. The Multiple Breadbasket Failure Initiative is a cross-cutting project at IIASA that looks into systemic food systems risks, cascading effects and catastrophe modelling in the agricultural sector.

EconTrans takes an innovative integrated approach to address challenges that are deeply interlinked: reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and coping with fundamental transformations triggered by disruptive technologies. The spatial focus of EconTrans is on Austria, while its emissions perspective and policy embedding is globally consistent. More
COACCH (CO-designing the Assessment of Climate CHange costs) is a Horizon 2020 project that aims to advance knowledge regarding climate change impacts and policy that can be used directly by stakeholder communities. More
LandslideEVO brings together experts in environmental hazards, engineering social sciences resilience, citizen science, and computational modelling to improve disaster resilience in Western Nepal. More
IIASA is a core member of the Flood Resilience Alliance, an innovative partnership between research, development and humanitarian NGOs and the private sector that works together for making at step change with regard to policy, finance and practice of managing floods and other climate-related hazards towards increased community resilience.
