SENSE Autumn School: Dealing with uncertainties in research for climate adaption - Netherlands
Climate adaptation research inevitably involves uncertainty issues - whether you are building a model, using climate scenarios, or evaluating policy processes. However, do you know which uncertainties are relevant in your field of work? And which uncertainties exist in the data from other disciplines that you use (e.g. climate data, land use, hydrological data) and how they propagate? Do you want to learn about how policy makers deal with uncertainties and what information they actually need for robust decisions?
This course reflects on a broad range of uncertainties which could be relevant for climate adaptation. Both uncertainties in climate- and socio-economic scenarios, in impact models, as in the decision making process will be discussed. In the morning lectures of a broad range of experts will be given, the afternoon is reserved for discussions and cases.
Together we want to work on the development of a common frame of reference for the use of scenarios and dealing with uncertainties.
This course is intended for for researchers in climate change - (KfC) PhD students, junior and senior researchers.
