Describe and analyze risk perception as a driver for risk management and innovative responses to climate change risks.
Working with each of INNOVA hubs WP 2 will co-develop and apply a generic framework to identify and analyze perceptions of risk and their origin, vulnerability and adaptive capacity in the innovation hubs, and make recommendations for up-scaling of the findings outside the innovation hubs.
Additionally this work package will combine the state-of-the-art information on climate in a transdisciplinary way to support the development of climate services.
As risks are always being dealt with by human agents (in institutions and individually, bottom-up or top-down in a place based context) any risk, vulnerability and adaptive capacity assessment should be undertaken from the perspective of socio-cultural-political and socio-economic values and norms of human agents in their bio-physical environments.
Hence WP 2 will describe and analyze societal path dependencies which have led to the current risk perception, risk management and utilization of climate services by institutional and human agents in the INNOVA hubs with respect to the INNOVA objective of advancing climate service development. Furthermore WP 2 will make recommendations for change management:
