ATLAS – Arctic Transition Laboratories (working title)
ACCELERATE – transformation as response to climate risk in cities (working title)
Climate risk accelerates change and societal transformations in cities and local communities, posing new limitations to conventional urban land use practices, and providing both opportunities and limitations for new and innovative responses to a changing climate. Two projects are in the making under this topic: ACCELERATE aims to advance knowledge of how climate risks are transforming land-use practices in four urban landscapes. The Arctic Transition Lab, ATLAS will be offering a full-scale experimentation within a number of sectors and activities: sustainable energy production, labour market development, climate risk management, seasonal forecasting, scenario development, governance and co-production of climate services.
