The EU-funded RECEIPT project was created to map connections between European socio-economic activities and remote climatic hazards. The aim is to provide quantitative information on the European risks from remote climatic events and outline Europe’s vulnerability to remote climate events. This will be achieved by looking into climate risks outside Europe and their potential consequences for key European socio-economic sectors such as: agriculture, finance, international development, manufacturing chains, coastal infrastructures. On the basis of this data, the project will create and inform about new business oppurtunities.
