SC 9.10 Incorporating uncertain scientific evidence into real-world adaptation decision making: what are the missing links?

Thursday 12 May, 11.00 – 12.45, Oscar Auditorium

This session seeks to advance the current understanding of the requirements that underpin the use of uncertain science information in developing innovative and effective adaptation decision-making, including under ‘high-end’ climate scenarios. This session is organised within the framework of the European FP7 IMPRESSIONS project and its case-studies. It brings together researchers working on climate adaptation related decision-making. The aim is to provide empirically-grounded, potentially transformative science that quantifies and explains the consequences of ‘high-end scenarios’ for society at large, and particularly for decision-makers with the responsibility of designing climate change adaptation, mitigation and development strategies.
