Press release: Managing coasts under threat from climate change and sea-level rise

September 1, 2014


GCF takes part in a number of research activities. Joint studies focus on problems for which stakeholders have very differing views. The goal is to clarify differences and produce analyses that summarize and advance our state of knowledge in critical problem areas. The Forum cultivates a pluralistic exchange in which different points of view can be freely expressed and debated on a basis of mutual respect.

Topics for GCF joint studies include global aspects of the interaction of climate change and the socio-economic system, regional impacts of climate change, economic and political instruments for controlling greenhouse gas emissions, and technologies for reducing greenhouse gas emissions, such as more efficient energy use, the introduction of renewable energy technologies, carbon sequestration etc.
