Climate Change and Impact Assessment

Som led i en større international konference i Washington inviterer International Association for Impact Assessment og Aalborg Universitet til et symposium i Aalborg d. 25. -26. oktober

 

Symposiet vil lægge vægt på praktiske eksemlper og vejledning, der er relevant for planlægning, design og forvaltning i forbindelse med konsekvenserne af klimaændringerne. Fokus lægges på udvalgte temaer og deres mulige påvirkning af eller anvendelighed i forhold til klimatilpasning og mitigation.

Konklusionerne fra symposiet i Aalborg bringes videre til "Special Climate Change Symposium", der afholdes i Washington D.C., 15-16 november 2010.

Key questions for sector experts and decision makers

  • What effects will climate change have on the feasibility, viability and long-term sustainability of policies, plans, programs or projects?
  • Will climate change exacerbate the impacts of a project?
  • To what degree does a project, program or policy or intervention promote reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions?
  • How can flexibility in responding to the impacts of climate change be assured through impact assessment?
  • How can impact assessment apply climate change projections to site-specific projects?
