EmBARK - Temporal Evolution of Barriers to Adaptation and their Relevance for Climate Related Loss and Damage

The EmBARK research group, led by Dr. Carl-Friedrich Schleussner, focusses on temporal evolution of barriers to adaptation and their relevance for climate related loss and damage. It is a consortium project with Climate Analytics in Berlin and started in November 2017.

The EmBARK – project will investigates time scales and possible trajectories of socio-economic transformation processes and analyses their relevance as potential barriers to adaptation to climate change. An improved understanding of the temporal dynamics of such barriers is decisive to develop a more realistic understanding of future climate impacts and for scientifically robust assessments of future climate related Loss and Damage (L&D) and to provide a scientific basis for the development of policy concepts on L&D.

Through the collaboration with regional climate institutions in the Caribbean as well as the longstanding expertise of the consortium partner Climate Analytics in international climate policy, the outcomes of EmBARK will directly inform practitioners and policy-makers alike.

The interdisciplinary research framework of EmBARK comprises 4 disciplinary PhDs projects that will be introduced alongside the projects structure, concepts and focus.
