We are doing science for policy
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.
The PESETA II output consists of several sectoral studies on individual biophysical impacts of climate change, as well as the main report, which features economic analysis and brings together the key messages.
The main report can be accessed at JRC Publications site:
