Full Project Title: Adaptation Research, a Transdisciplinary Transnational Community and Policy Centred Approach
Full Call Title: Coastal2012


Project Objective: ARTisticc's goal is to apply innovative standardized transdisciplinary approaches to develop robust, socially, culturally and scientifically, community centred adaptation strategies as well as a series of associated policy briefs.

ARTisticc is a project fundamentally centered on coastal communities. This research will allow for a better understanding of adaptation as a scientific, social, economic and cultural practice in coastal settings. In order to share these results with local communities and policy makers, this in a way that respects cultural specificities while empowering stakeholders, ARTisticc translates these "real life experiments" into stories and artwork that are meaningful to those affected by climate change.
Call Objective: The purpose of this call was to promote the development, comparison and transfer of coastal scientific approaches. The focus was on the vulnerability, resilience and adaptation options of coastal societal, managed and natural systems to multiple drivers.
