CLICCS in a nutshell
CLIMATE, CLIMATIC CHANGE, AND SOCIETY (CLICCS) is an ambitious research program at Universität Hamburg and its partner institutions Max Planck Institute for Meteorology, Helmholtz-Center for Material and Coastal Research, GIGA German Institute of Global and Area Studies and the German Climate Computing Center as well as Hafen City Universität and Technische Universität Hamburg. Funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) for a duration of seven years it is part of Germany’s Excellence Strategy.
The program aims to understand climate changes, taking into account internal variability, extreme events, and unexpected side effects, addressing the natural and social spheres as well as their interactions. Thus CLICCS’ overarching research question is: which climate futures are possible and which are plausible? CLICCS will investigate how climate changes and how society changes with it, thereby feeding back on climate. It will identify those climate futures that are consistent with both climate and social dynamics (possible), and those we expect to unfold with appreciable probability (plausible). Our program spans the range from basic research on climate dynamics and climate related social dynamics to the transdisciplinary exploration of human-environment interactions.
