The vulnerability of society and the economy to the impacts of climate change requires
both appropriate emission reduction measures and adaptation policies. These are already
of great importance, but will become more so in the future.

In particular, there is great potential and demand for research on these issues in South-
Eastern European (SEE) countries. Especially against the background of the coming call of
the 7th FP there is an essential need to discuss and potentially coordinate joint research interests.

Therefore the coming workshop will help to exchange the latest findings in climate changerelated research, and also focus on exchanging project ideas to encourage the initiation of joint projects.

To reach these objectives, the workshop will
include the following opportunities:

* Researchers can present innovative and new findings of their research by presentations
* Small groups of researchers can exchange and discuss project ideas and will possibly determine a working plan for joint project proposals, e. g. under the 7th FP

Workshop topics include:

*Economic impacts of climate change (+Adaptation policy)
*Monitoring and forecasting the environmental impacts of climate change, e. g. drought, natural hazards, on biodiversity (+ Adaptation policy)
*CDM / Kyoto / renewable energy – especially biomass
*Synergies between adaptation and mitigation, e. g. meeting the future heating and cooling energy demand; forest management
