Centre for European Policy Studies

Short name

The CEPS team will be involved in WP 3.3: Managing societal response to future fire risk conditions (co-leader). The main contribution of the research team will be to Task 3.3.2 - Implications of European policies/strategies/initiatives under future fire risk conditions. Initially, the feasibility of possible policy responses to forest fires on various levels and their relevance to EU policy areas will be assessed, paying attention to impacts on carbon markets. Further, the extent to which these responses should be incorporated into the EU adaptation framework will be examined.
Work packages
Previous experience relevant to the work CEPS has demonstrated its capacity to manage or participate in networks and large research projects or studies, also in the field of climate change. For the Adaptation and Mitigation strategies for Europe (ADAM) project CEPS has produced a number of research reports and hosted seminars (FP 6, 2006-2009). CEPS leads or participates in five work packages of the Security of Energy considering its uncertainty, risk and economic implications (SECURE) project (FP 7, 2008-2010). There CEPS applies its expertise and its access to a network of stakeholders to assessing the long-term impact of energy, transport, environment and climate change policy in the EU. It participates in The fiscal implications of climate change adaptation (CLIMAD) study (DG ECFIN). In the context of the Global Sectoral Approaches study (DG ENTR), CEPS is a member of a consortium, led by the Center for Clean Air Policy (CCAP) that analyses the potential of sectoral approaches to address climate change. Among other, the study examines the role of forests in a post-2012 climate change regime. In collaboration with a partner (MISTRA’s CLIPORE) CEPS has launched a series of seminars in Brussels under the European Climate Platform (ECP).
