The TRCCC constitutes a comprehensive compilation of scientific research on the current situation with regard to this issue in Catalonia and is the result of the participation of 140 authors and 40 reviewers from the country's leading universities and research centres. Thus, the TRCCC aims to facilitate the transfer of accurate knowledge based on strong scientific foundations to those with decision-making responsibilities.
With a clear commitment to public service and an independent, scientific stance, the document describes the principle indicators of climate change in Catalonia and formulates strategic recommendations, devised by the authors of the various chapters, towards mitigating greenhouse gas emissions and adapting natural and human systems to the effects of climate change.
This is the first time the report has made recommendations to help the Government with its decisions and continue working on improving governance mechanisms and water management, while creating flexible adaptation strategies and adopt a circular economy.
The TRCCC was spearheaded by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Institutional Relations and Transparency, (through the Advisory Council for the Sustainable Development of Catalonia), the Ministry of Territory and Sustainability (through the Catalan Office for Climate Change and the Meteorological Service of Catalonia) and the Institute of Catalan Studies (IEC).
