Knowledge generated by adaptation research investments in Europe is potentially useful for developing countries, yet knowledge sharing and development focusing on climate change adaptation is currently not yet high on the agenda of European national research funders and researchers, like those represented in CIRCLE-2 (Climate Impact Research & Response Coordination for a Larger Europe ) and the Joint Programming Initiative Climate.
The policy suggests a set of benchmarks or good practice principles for CIRCLE-2 partner programmes and other research funding and managing institutions. Possible project and programme design options are proposed that facilitate and promote knowledge sharing between industrialized and developing countries in the area of climate change adaptation research.
