GERICS is part of national and international networks of institutions working in the field of climate change. Examples of such networks are the partner network of the EU project IMPACT2C or the national webportal „Klimanavigator.de“.
In the Net-Zero-2050 project strategies and new ways to reduce CO2 emissions are examined and evaluated. The focus here is on the German framework. The web atlas shows project results that are important for CO2 neutral Germany up to 2050. Net-Zero-2050 is intended to promote the public and political debate on CO2 neutrality on various levels.
The web atlas of the completed EU project IMPACT2C (Quantifying projected impacts under 2C warming) supports both the core tasks of GERICS and the economic, environmental and climate policy of the EU in international negotiations (e.g. COP21). IMPACT2C was a four-year multidisciplinary and pan-European EU research project (with 29 partner institutions, coordinated by GERICS) that investigated the potential impacts of 2°C global warming in Europe and three particularly vulnerable regions (Bangladesh, Maldives, Niger) in terms of vulnerabilities, risks and economic costs.
The web portal Klimanavigator brings together actors from the research landscape in the field of climate research and provides guidance. The portal is sustained currently by more than 50 partner institutions from climate research in Germany – across all institutional and professional borders.

Document Server Climate Change (Dokumentenserver Klimawandel)
In order to sustainably harness the knowledge gained from German research projects on climate change, a knowledge archive “Dokumentenserver Klimawandel” has been established. Material produced by the KLIMZUG projects served for the creation of the archive as a pilot project. The acronym KLIMZUG stands for “Climate Change within Regions”. The server is conceptualized by GERICS and Hamburg University Press.
