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

Issue #11 July 2018

TRANSrisk is an exciting 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.
