Regional Assessment Reports

In cooperation with universities, scientific institutes and authorities, current knowledge about past, present and future potential climate change has been summarized in regional assessment reports. These regional climate change assessments are based on published scientific work with a regional IPCC like evaluation. Internationally, regional assessment reports about the North Sea and Baltic Sea have been published. Coordinated by the Institute of Coastal Research, the first regional and transnational assessment report for the Baltic Sea was published in 2008.
