Brief description of the legal entity
The Euro-Mediterranean Centre for Climate Change (CMCC) is the Italian research centre on climate science and policy. Its activities focus on the development and applications of models of climate dynamics, climate change impacts, social economic impact assessment and of cost benefit assessment of climate change adaptation and mitigation policies. The CMCC thus produces numerical simulations of global and regional models of climate change (ANS division), analyses land use changes, deforestation and afforestation dynamics, water and ecosystem transformations (IAFENT division) and finally investigates the interlinkages of these dimensions with social economic activities. This both in terms of anthropogenic impacts on climate change and the environment and of climatic impact on human development. For that concerning economists and social scientists: the CIP division (climate impact and policy) is specifically devoted to the investigation of the social economic dimension of climate change: its research focuses on the economic assessment of climate change impacts, on the production of social-economically based emission scenarios and on the cost benefit assessment of mitigation and adaptation policies.
