Researchers from the Finnish Environment Institute had an important role in developing new approaches for analysing cross-border climate change impacts and responses. Their CASCADES research team developed a conceptual framework and accompanying nomenclature that was recently published in the journal Global Environmental Change. The framework assists in describing some of the complexities of climate impacts as they propagate across borders. It also provides a useful mechanism for identifying potential adaptation responses that can build resilience in the face of such cross-border risks. Three researchers from SYKE’s Climate Change Research Programme (ILMO) – Timothy Carter (lead author), Stefan Fronzek and Mikael Hildén – contributed to the publication.
