Global climate change is expected to have a strong impact on the environment on local, regional and global scales. Its impact can be particularly important at regions which are additionally subject to other changes, i.e. population growth, land use change, and change in industrial and hydropower sectors. As a result, the scientific community has been focusing on activities and initiatives, i.e. climate scenarios, impact assessments, adaptation and mitigation strategies, to reduce system’s vulnerability to climate change and improve decision making.

The CCISA2013 workshop aims to strengthen the understanding of climate change impacts and link scientific insights to policies for promoting sustainability. The workshop will look into the scientific, technical and social challenges as well as implications of climate change on sustainable development.
