WP2 The coordination, management and decision process of SOCLIMPACT are described in section 3.2. They are formalised here in tasks, deliverables and milestones, for a better monitoring of project implementation. The main objective...


WP3 SOCLIMPACT requires the implementation of a sophisticated modelling chain, articulating climate projections, Climate Change impact assessment, modelling of socio-economic impacts, and scenarios building. This also require a...


WP4 WP4 aims at assessing the impacts of Climate Change through the development of a trans-disciplinary framework in order to analyse complex interactions among connected systems. This framework will allow setting up a chain linking...


WP6 This WP focuses on the assessment of the socioeconomic impacts of climate impacts and climate mitigation policies on islands. The methodological toolkit to be employed includes contrasted modelling tools that will be used in a...


WP7 The overall objective for WP7 is to create and rank tailored transition pathways for EU islands. It aims to identify critical decision points and their associated uncertainties in the development of adaptation and mitigation...


WP8 The main objective of this WP is the development and implementation of proper communication and dissemination actions, to ensure knowledge transfer and social awareness about CC consequences, and support policy makers and...


The main objective of this WP is to estimate the economic values of changes in the Environmental Services of the marine and coastal ecosystems (inputs for Blue Economy sectors), due to Climate Change impacts and related policies.
Values primarily obtained in islands will be transferred to the whole coastal areas of Europe through refined methods for value transference.

A set of specific objectives derives from it:

  1. To develop a robust methodology to translate climate shocks and policies into changes in quantity and quality of the Environmental Services affected, which are relevant for the Blue Economy activities, using material and energy flow accounting models (Fischer-Kowalski et al., 2011).
  2. To obtain the main factors determining people’s marginal economic value for each environmental service being affected by Climate Change. Those factors will include not only socioeconomic and demographic, but also psychological and emotional factors (Araña and Leon, 2009). In addition, differences in values due to framing effect will be estimated.
    (De Martino et al., 2006 ; Horowitz and McConnell, 2002)
  3. To estimate the effects the economic values derived from social perceptions have into the economic systems of islands, which are relevant for Blue Economy activities, to be transferred to economic modelling.
  4. To feed big data analysis with data from economic values of Environmental Services impacted by climate shocks and policies, obtained through both revealed and stated preferences, and generate a map for other marine and coastal areas of Europe.
