Launch of the first reports of the TeRRIFICA project!
December 19, 2019
With our network partners in six regions of Europe, the TeRRIFICA project has published the following three reports on climate action and co-creation:
For this report, the TeRRIFICA pilot region teams from Belarus, France, Germany, Poland, Serbia and Spain identified case studies of community-academia research partnership from their regions or countries related to climate change adaptation and/or mitigation. The projects were analysed taking into account their aims and objectives, the way of communication and participation, conflicts and barriers, and good participatory research practices. This “Case Studies Report” includes a summary of these analysed projects that highlights common outstanding elements for the development of future climate actions with community-academia research partnerships. Additionally, each case study is presented in an individual profile with key information to give a more detailed insight into these exciting and supportive examples of climate action.
This TeRRIFICA report is produced in the framework of the first phase of the project: the knowledge phase. Indeed, the first step for fostering co-creation on climate change is to learn about the local contexts of the six pilot regions, including specific local climate effects impacting the region, key actors, local policies on climate, if there are some participation mechanisms already in place, what are the types of collaborations between stakeholders, etc. This is one of the core goals of TeRRIFICA in regards to thematic approach, content definition and implementation strategies. This part of work, led by the Adam Mickiewicz University (Poznań) team, includes different activities to create a comprehensive overview on the state of the art of climate change adaptation research and innovation strategies and examples and communication strategies and methods at different levels of complexity.
The TeRRIFICA guide on engagement and co-creation aims at fostering stakeholders’ engagement and co-creation within the context of climate mitigation and adaptation. The guide provides some (non-)prescriptive ideas, recommendations and methodologies – they are a “starting point” to help stakeholder engagement and co-creation processes within climate change policymaking in the pilot regions. It also disseminates “good practices”, i.e. some methodologies and experimentations that may be transferable to other regions in Europe to co-create measures tackling climate change.
