CO-designing the Assessment of Climate CHange costs


COACCH will develop an innovative science-practice and integrated approach to co-design and co-deliver an improved downscaled assessment of the risks and costs of climate change in Europe, working with end users from research, business, investment, and policy making communities throughout the project. COACCH will advance the evidence base on complex climate change impact chains, assessing their market, non-market, macroeconomic and social consequences in the EU.

The final objective of COACCH is to produce an improved downscaled assessment of the risks and costs of climate change in Europe that can be of direct usability and respond to the different needs of end users from the research, business, investment, and the policy making community. This overall objective is substantiated into five specific goals:
1.    To develop technically excellent and innovative research on complex climate change impact chains, using downscaled climate information and advancing integrated assessment methods and models developed under early RTD research calls.
2.    To develop a challenge-driven and solutions orientated research and innovation approach, involving proactively business, industrial, public decision makers and research stakeholders in the co-design, co-production and co-dissemination of policy driven research.
3.    To significantly advance the knowledge and the evidence base not only on climate tipping elements and tipping points but also on socio-economic tipping points.
4.    To advance the economic valuation of climate action (mitigation and adaptation) in the EU at various scales over short to longer-term timeframes to support a more informed policy process in the achievement of intended nationally determined contributions (INDCs) for the EU.
5.    To enhance innovation capacity and integration of this new knowledge using co-dissemination of results with bus

Role of BC3 in COACCH:
BC3 is involved in assessing risk attitudes and preferences for climate policy analysis, as well as climate and socioeconomic tipping points. With regards to sectoral impact chains, BC3 will develop a framework for the economic valuation of heatwave impacts on human health in Europe.
