PLACARD

The PLAtform for Climate Adaptation and Risk reDuction (PLACARD) project seeks to establish a comprehensive coordination and knowledge exchange platform for climate change adaptation (CCA) and disaster risk reduction (DRR) for multi-stakeholder dialogue and consultation.

Active project

2015–2020

The PLAtform for Climate Adaptation and Risk reDuction (PLACARD) project focuses on issues involving climate change reduction (CCA) and disaster risk reduction (DRR). The project aims to address gaps, fragmentation and challenges that emerge between the two communities in terms of current research, policy-making and practice. The projects supports the development and implementation of an evidence base for research and innovation policies.

Specifically, PLACARD has the following objectives:

  • Establish a network of networks of different CCA and DRR stakeholder groups and initiatives at the international, European, national and sub-national scales.
  • Create a common “space” to facilitate dialogue and consultation among stakeholders and initiatives.
  • Design effective science, policy and practice dialogues.
  • Take stock of the adaptation and DRR decision-making context.
  • Facilitate and guide knowledge exchange and mobilization between adaptation and DRR.
  • Strengthen adaptation and DRR institutions and give direction to policy-practice agendas.
  • Streamline the dissemination and implementation of ongoing and evolving research and innovation activities on adaptation.

The Connectivity Hub gives CCA and DRR communities a sophisticated “search and discovery” tool to find common ground.
