Adaptation and Mitigation: Responses to Climate Change

29 August - 3 September 2010
Grindelwald, Switzerland


The topics covered at the NCCR Climate Summer School 2010 included:

  • Emission scenarios and the future of the global climate
  • Economics of climate change: an overview
  • Assessing costs and benefits of climate change
  • Adaptation and Mitigation: instruments, strategic aspects and implementation
  • Climate policy and international negotiations

The Summer School invited young researchers from all fields of climate and climate impact research. The courses covered a broad spectrum of climate impact research issues and foster cross-disciplinary links. Each topic included keynote plenary lectures and workshops with in-depth discussion in smaller groups. All Summer School participants presented a poster of their research and there was ample opportunity for discussion. An excursion lead to exciting research sites.
