TRANSition Pathways and RISK Analysis

for Climate Change Mitigation and

Adaptation Strategies

Issue #5 October 2016


TRANSrisk is an EU funded research project aiming to innovatively transform the way in which climate change policy pathways are developed.

TRANSrisk seeks to understand the costs, level of public acceptance, and the risks, uncertainties and co-effects associated with different mitigation pathways and low-carbon technologies.

In order to help policymakers manage uncertainties TRANSrisk will gather data via 15 case studies from the EU and other regions, and employ a variety of different models to explore scenarios and pathways.

TRANSrisk will also engage a wide range of stakeholders to help develop credible transition pathways, thus integrating quantitative and qualitative analysis in a unique and innovative way.

TRANSrisk Case Studies Workshop in Brighton, October 2016

The TRANSrisk Case Studies Workshop in Brighton was implemented on the 4th and 5th of October 2016 at the University of Sussex.

The key objective of the workshop was to present the progress so far, next steps and the application of the System Mapping tool for each country case study, namely Austria, Netherlands, Spain, Poland, Sweden, Switzerland, Kenya, China, India, Indonesia, Chile, UK, Canada and Greece. Small discussion groups discussed among others the development of pathways in case studies and quantitative and qualitative approaches.

The highlight of the event was the active participation and contribution of the Scientific Advisory Board Members providing valuable suggestions and key input regarding TRANSrisk case study research. Fruitful discussions took place among TRANSrisk partners and the Advisory Board Members covering important issues on the future actions of the work.

Literature Review on Uncertainties & Risks for Climate Policy

TRANSrisk made a comprehensive literature review in order to explore the risks and uncertainties which are associated with different climate policy choices. A well structured process was established in order to guide the review that includ-ed more than 400 articles.

More information is available in deliverable D5.1 Review of key uncertainties and risks for climate policy.



The TRANSrisk project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 642260.
