Strengthening INternational Cooperation on climatE change REsearch
SINCERE is a project funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 programme, whose aim is to strengthen the delivery of the JPI Climate Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda, building on existing collaborations, such as the business sector and global financial institutions, and other key international research, policy and societal actors.
SINCERE aims to strengthen the delivery of the JPI Climate Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda, building on existing collaborations, such as the business sector and global financial institutions, and other key international research, policy and societal actors.Two Flagship Actions, focused on the design of research and innovation collaborations in Africa and Latin America, aim to expand and deepen knowledge to support the uptake of climate change adaptation and mitigation policies, climate services and resilience to disasters linked to climate change. Expanding JPI Climate to include member countries in Eastern Europe is a particular goal.
SINCERE will make JPI Climate an attractive partner for global cooperation in climate change research and innovation, thanks to close partnership with other JPIs, European Commission and European initiatives, as well as cooperation with the Global Framework for Climate Services, the Future Earth platform on global sustainability and the Belmont Forum.The project will strengthen the role of JPI Climate in providing underpinning knowledge and evidence for supporting the implementation of related EU policies and for fostering the EU’s common position in the global climate-related negotiations under UNFCCC. In addition, SINCERE will support the implementation of the SDGs, in particular SDG 13 ‘Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts’, as well as the implementation of the COP21 Paris Agreement.
