TRANSition Pathways and RISK Analysis for Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation Strategies

Issue #8 June 2017

TRANSrisk is an exciting new EU Horizon 2020 project studying the risks and uncertainties that lie ahead as we transition to a low carbon world. Our work examines the technical, economic and social feasibility of potential low carbon transition pathways. The project's outputs will help countries develop NDCs that complement socio-economic goals and assess risks and uncertainties associated with their potential pathways.

3rd -4th July 2017, Bilbao, Spain

Assessing Uncertainties and Risks in the Transition to Low Carbon and Sustainable Societies

The main objective of the workshop is to provide discussion on the transition pathways applicable to each TRANSrisk case study, and on the main risks and uncertainties associated with them. Researchers from MEDEAS H2020 project that assesses risks connected to renewable energy transition, will join the workshop.

 

 

 

BC3 Summer School

5th -7th July 2017, San Sebastian, Spain

BC3 Summer School Climate Change in an Era of Uncertainty

 

The objective of the summer school is to offer an updated and recent view of the ongoing trends in Climate Change research in an annual basis. The BC3 Summer School is organized in collaboration with the University of the Basque Country (Fundamentos de Análisis Económico I) and is a high quality and excellent summer course gathering leading experts in the field and students from top universities and research centres worldwide.

On the 5th of July TRANSrisk's researchers will be participating in a Round Table Discussion organised by Jenny Lieu (SPRU), Sussane Hanger (ETHZ) and Mikel González-Eguino (BC3) on behavioural change.

Past TRANSrisk Events

May 2017

TRANSrisk co-organised with GREEN- WIN Horizon2020 project the "2nd International Workshop on Sustainability and Resilience of Bio-energy for Climate Change: Support Exemplary Solutions, Business Models and Enabling Conditions", on the 22nd-24th of May 2017 in Bali, Indonesia.

The workshop provided an opportunity to analyze the sustainability and climate resilience of low carbon transition pathways comprising of biofuels made from crop wastes and residues that are technically and economically feasible and acceptable from a social and environmental viewpoint.

June 2017

TRANSrisk partner Pontifical Catholic University of Chile (CLAPESUC) organised the seminar "Climate Change and Sustainable Development in Chile: Evidence and Challenges" on the 8th of June 2017.

The seminar presented empirical and comparative evidence on three themes of Sustainable Development, seeking to anticipate future challenges for Chile. TRANSrisk partners Science Technology Policy Research, University of Sussex (SPRU), Joint Implementation Network (JIN), and Cambridge Econometrics (CE) presented relevant outcomes from the work implemented within the TRANSrisk case studies in China, and the Netherlands.
