COP18: More over-aching approach to climate research needed

COP18 (04/12/12) –Antonio Navarra, President of the Euro-Mediterranean Center on Climate Change talks about the work of his organisation to provide an over-arching centre for climate impacts research.

He says that previously climate change research has been undertaken on a sector by sector basis and that they didn’t tackle the problem as a whole.

He says his organisation works to provide a convergence of disciplines. He says his group tackles climate modelling, specific sectors such as agriculture and forests and also the economics and policy side of climate change.
