PLACARD is a Horizon 2020 Coordination and Support Action that seeks to support the coordination of Climate Change Adaptation (CCA) and Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) for coherent, mutually reinforcing and pragmatic planning and action. PLACARD will tackle current challenges by 1) providing a common ‘space’ where CCA and DRR communities can come together, share experiences and create opportunities for collaboration ; 2) facilitating communication and knowledge exchange between both communities ; and 3) supporting the coordination and coherence of CCA and DRR research, policy and practice.

PLACARD’s approach to achieving these goals is to establish a strong and operational network of networks by connecting to existing networks and boundary organisations, to foster dialogue among stakeholders (e.g. researchers, research funders, policymakers, practitioners) engaged in CCA and DRR at the international, European, national and sub-national scales. This overarching network will enable these communities to share knowledge, to discuss challenges and to jointly co-produce options to bridge the gaps they experience. It will support the development and implementation of a research and innovation agenda to make better use of research funding, as well as to develop guidelines to strengthen relevant institutions in their efforts to mainstream CCA and DRR.

The ISE/GRID research group is involved in workpackages 1 "PLACARD Interchange" , 2 "Stocktaking of the decision-making context" and 4 "Institutional strengthening" :

  • WP1 ‘PLACARD Interchange’ will generate a “space” where CCA and DRR actors discuss and share their views and experiences. This will allow inform about research and innovation activities as well as to facilitate the exchange of knowledge between researchers, funders, policymakers and practitioners.
  • WP2 ‘Stocktaking of the decision-making context’ will canvass and analyze existing the CCA and DRR landscape, including actors, networks, initiatives, projects, and platforms.
  • WP4 ‘Institutional strengthening’ will develop guidelines to enhance policy coherence and reinforce institutional coordination at various governance and geographical scales.
