Description
European Topic Centres (ETCs) are centres of thematic expertise contracted by the EEA to carry out specific tasks identified in the EEA Multiannual Work Programme and the annual work programmes. They are designated by the EEA Management Board following a Europe-wide competitive selection process and work as extensions of the EEA in specific topic areas. Each ETC consists of a lead organisation and specialist partner organisations from the environmental research and information community, which combine their resources in their particular areas of expertise. The ETC/CCA activities on climate change, impacts, vulnerability, adaptation and disaster risk reduction include: -harmonisation, quality assessment and exchange of data and/or information; -processing of climate-related information, including use of models, mapping, analyses, evaluations and (thematic, sectoral and integrated) assessments to describe and analyse the status of the environment in support to sound policy decision making; -update, improvement and development of indicators to communicate the findings to various users; -content maintenance, improvement and further development of Climate-ADAPT; -provision of capacity building in EEA countries.
