IIASA will host the project partners and stakeholders of MOSAIC (Managing protective forests facIng clImate change compound events) for their first project management meeting and technical workshop. The event's aims are to cover issues of climate change data mining and structuring, with a focus on data freely available and its condition of uses; project storage infrastructure; downscaling and upscaling processes; and possible exchanges with relevant networks.

As part of the meeting, participants will join discussions in Laxenburg on work package progress, updates, and future plans. In addition, an exciting excursion is also in the books: participants will join a trip to the nearby Hirschwang region for a hike and talk about the recent wildfire which occurred there. This will spark discussions on the role of forests in managing and mitigating climate change hazards in the alpine space.
