Annual consortium meeting, 13 May 2020: Understanding the Short- and Long-Term Impacts of Climate Extremes (SLICE)

Identifying key impact channels and effective strategies for long-term economic development under climate change

Several stakeholders and SAB members of the SLICE project team, as well as the project team, participated in the annual SLICE workshop on 13.05.2020 from 9 am to 5 pm (find the schedule here).

The content of the workshop was aimed to inform key stakeholders and the scientific advisory board (SAB) members about last year's progress in the SLICE project and the work planned within the current year. We also used breakout groups to discuss modeling approaches and stakeholder interactions.

Due to the Corona pandemic, the annual workshop was held remotely, but the schedule was easy to implement remotely, and the format even offered some advantages. We were able to actively involve stakeholders and SAB members who do not live in the Berlin area (e.g., David Bresch from ETH Zurich or Anna Dimitrova from IIASA).

Following the morning session, an exciting discussion on policy-relevant climate risk indicators developed and during the afternoon session. In the breakout groups, we had the opportunity to discuss how to continue and intensify our cooperation with stakeholders and SAB members (Arun Rana (InsuResilience Solutions Fund), Anna Dimitrova (IIASA), Christoph von Stochow (BMZ) and David Bresch (ETH)).
