RAMSES is a European research project which aims to deliver much needed quantified evidence of the impacts of climate change and the costs and benefits of a wide range of adaptation measures, focusing on cities. LSE is a project partner within a consortium of thirteen public and private research institutions, led by the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, working across eight European countries.

RAMSES stands for Reconciling Adaptation, Mitigation and Sustainable Development for Cities. The project will develop a set of innovative tools that will quantify the impacts of climate change and the costs and benefits of adaptation, providing evidence for policy makers to inform the design of adaptation strategies. The project focuses on cities, as major centres of population, economic activity, greenhouse gas emissions and infrastructure. LSE’s contribution includes leading the development of a cost assessment framework for guiding decisions on climate change adaptation policy.
