FORBIO CLIMATE: Adaptation potential of biodiverse forests in the face of climate change Ghent University
FORBIO CLIMATE FORBIO CLIMATE: Adaptation potential of biodiverse forests in the face of climate change Fed. Wet. Beleid BR/132/A1
Climate change is expected to have a large impact on the distribution, composition and functioning of forest ecosystems
worldwide due to the limited migration and adaptation potential of trees. Creating resistant and resilient forests is thus a
key challenge for forest management. It has ...

Role Changes of the EU and China in Climate Change Policy in interaction with EU-China Cooperation in the Post-Kyoto Era Ghent University
The research project have two targets: Firstly, it aims to identify and understand the role change of the EU and China in the post-Kyoto era. Secondly, it aims to examine the interaction between these role changes and EU-China climate change cooperation by focusing at both the bilateral and the multilateral level.
Remote sensing based assessment and modeling of land use/cover change as impact bij stream dynamics and climate schange in the Northern marginal grabens of the Ethiopian rift vally (PhD research by biadgilgn demissie Ghent University
Tis research concerns the quantification of stream cours dynamics, changes in land use/cover and changes in livelihood variables at multiple spatial and temporal scales in an endorheic basin in Ethiopia. It will also provide a framework to study the interaction among climate change, stream dynamics and land use/vocer schanges, to investigate the controlling factors and to design appopriate measures.
Climate change and the legitimacy challenge. An empirical investigation into the threat of climate change to perceived democratic legitimacy and potential procedural solutions. KU Leuven
Climate change poses a challenge for democratic governance: On the one hand, it is essential to get citizens on board with transformative policy decisions to deal with climate change. On the other hand, citizens might start to question the legitimacy of democratic institutions and demand new types of governance if they feel that existing institutions cannot adequately protect them from the consequences of climate change. This presents a ...

Archaeology, art and coastal heritage - tools to support coastal management and climate change planning across the Channel Regional Sea (ARCH-MANCHE). Ghent University
The Arch-Manche project will demonstrate how archaeology, art and maritime coastal heritage can be used to show long-term patterns of coastal change and the impact on human settlement. Study of this data allows understanding and modelling of past reactions to climate change to help with planning for the future.
