ESPON Climate - Climate Change and Territorial Effects on Regions and Local Economies

 Project duration: 03/2009 to 04/2011

Within the framework of the European Spatial Planning Observation Network (ESPON) the research project ESPON Climate deals with the impacts of climate change on Europe's regions and their effects as well as their consequences for spatial planning. Therefore the projects seeks to analyse the regional sensitivities towards climate stimuli and the likely economic effects of climate change on European regions also considering mitigation and adaptation measures. Eventually, the projects aims at the development of new potential regional typologies with respect to the multitude of aspects and consequences in the context of climate change.
