TRANSrisk is an EU funded research project aiming to innovatively transform the way in which climate change policy pathways are developed. The focus is to support EU and global climate change goals by providing analytical tools for risk and uncertainty aware policy making.
TRANSrisk started in September 2015 with the contribution of 12 Universities / Research Centers.
TRANSrisk’s main objectives are to:
- Create a novel assessment framework that incorporates risk and uncertainty into policy design for analysing the costs and benefits of transition pathways. An innovative framework will integrate well-established approaches to modelling the costs of resilient, low-emission pathways with a wider interdisciplinary approach including risk assessments.
- Design a decision support tool to help policy makers better understand uncertainties and risks to inform robust policy design.
These objectives can be broken down to a set of more specific goals that are presented in detail in TRANSrisk official website http://www.transrisk-project.eu/content/objectives
TRANSrisk aims to transform the way in which alternative climate change policy pathways are identified and evaluated, through the following four areas:
- Stakeholders Engagement & Participatory Scenario Development
- Synergies & Conflicts
- Innovation Policies & Transition Pathways
- Assessing Uncertainties & Risks
TRANSrisk expects to have an impact across the policy, business, social and academic sectors:
- Provide new insights on mitigation pathways across multiple sectors and geographical areas (15 case studies in the EU as well as Canada, Chile, China, India, Indonesia and Kenya).
- Provide decision makers with tools to assess and evaluate the socio-economic costs & benefits of mitigation options.
- Support EU and global climate policy goals such as the implementation and review of the EC’s “Roadmap for moving to a low-carbon economy by 2050”.
- Contribute to major international scientific assessments (e.g. IPCC).
