Welcome to the Centre for Climate and Safety, CCS, a knowledge center at Karlstad university. We seek to find solutions to the risks connected to extreme weather events such as rainstorms, floods and windstorms - through our research and through cooperative projects.

  • We are a resource in research and learbing about climate related risks and the management and governance of these - in today's climate and in the future.
  • We focus on risks connected to extreme weather events such as rainstorms, floods and windstorms - through our research and through cooperative projects.
  • Our research questions require a cross-disciplinary approach. We are a multi-disciplinary group and our research is often conducted in cooperation with researchers from various disciplines and various research organizations.
  • One of our strong profiles is linking our research to municipal and regional practice.

Our research focuses on key concepts such as natural hazards, vulnerability, risk management and governance. The main aim is to assess the vulnerability of society, its ability to cope with actual and potential risks and the long term changes to these risks brought about by a changing climate. Other activities complements our research and enables us to gather data and new questions, to communicate results and to facilitate collaboration and learning.

Our research focuses on key concepts such as risk management, vulnerability and safety. The main aim is to assess the vulnerability of society and its ability to cope with the potential risks. We excel at linking our research to municipal and regional practice.

Cooperative projects is typhically conducted in cooperation with scientists from various disciplines and various research organizations.
