Climate impacts in one location that propagate to other locations through trade and value chains, development and security policies, and financial systems, may have disrupting effects similar to the COVID-19 pandemic and the war on Ukraine. These effects are not easily represented in traditional analysis frameworks and need to be embedded in the wider context of social vulnerability and climate change. 

The horizon 2020 projects CASCADES and RECEIPT are pleased to invite you to register for their joint conference “Cross-border climate change impacts and systemic risks in Europe and beyond” on 16-18 October 2023 at PIK (Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research), in Germany and, partially, online.
