What we do

The EClim group investigates risks, impacts and adaptation options to climate change, focusing on mountain regions and its people throughout the world.

Our research integrates natural and social science disciplines to understand how environmental and socio-environmental systems respond to climate change.

We aim to produce actionable and solution-oriented knowledge, and we collaborate with stakeholders from practice and policy.
