Description of the research topic:

The expected impacts of climate change are difficult to forecast with total certainty, creating challenges for the analysis of the capacity and willingness to adapt in different social and economic systems. Adaptation and sustainability are closely interconnected and reinforce each other. Innovating for sustainability and climate change can play pivotal role on global and local levels as well especially in the era of IoT. Globalization, urbanization processes lead to the development of more frequent and intense bottom-up approaches in several communities worldwide also related to climate issues especially focusing on smart urban, rural and sectoral solutions. The possible impacts of climate change make the transition towards sustainability more complicated especially in the preparation for expected impacts, prevention, management and recovery. Climate change related consequences can also have significant influence on different sectors in a given area for instance related to the quality of life, innovation potential, competitiveness income, health etc., which can make up the basis for regional sustainability.
