Portal:Complex Systems Digital Campus/E-Laboratory on Climate system and human system interaction
the repository for Open Questions, Challenges and Ressources of the
Challenges[edit | edit source]
Today, one of the main challenges for future generations of man is to understand how highly complex systems such as the human and the climate systems interact, what place conscious individuals occupy in this mega-system, and how to provide realistic pathways to sustainable development from both global and inter-generational perspectives. Facing this challenge with cooperation across scientific disciplines will create an integrative vision of different aspects of the interaction of complex human and climate systems: (physics, climatology, agronomy, hydrology, environmental engineering, geography, ecology, economics, political sciences, anthropology, psychology, linguistics, neurobiology, educational sciences, etc). Including mathematicians can permit the development of models. Taking into consideration inter-cultural, inter-regional and inter-sectorial visions can provide research with a very wide data base and a large variety of situations. The objective of the CSHSI laboratory is to create an international forum with an interdisciplinary perspective and an integrative as well as predictive approach to the organisation, adaptation, modification and transformation of the highly complex “mega-system” of interactions between the human and the climate systems.
Organisation[edit | edit source]
The project, is comprised of several “work packages”, all of which relate to the main challenge of studying the interaction betwe
I/. Different levels of research and teaching programs 1/. Individual level: cognition, emotion, behavior, language / climate-climate change; 2/. Small scale systems: local agriculture, fishing, pasturing / climate-climate change; 3/. Regional scale systems: production, consumption, commerce / climate-climate change; 4/. National systems: politics, economy, energy / climate-climate change; 5/. International/global systems: economy, energy, institutions, commerce / climate-climate change
II/. Different fields of research and teaching programs: 1/. Complex system behaviour in climate change 2/. Sustainable development / climate-climate change; 3/. Basic human needs, for example: nutrition / climate-climate change; 4/. Technology / climate-climate change; 5/. Modification of ecosystems / climate-climate change 6/. Information, knowledge, media, scientific research, education / climate-climate change 7/. Psycho-social dynamics in relation to risks and sustainable development issues; 8/. Climate change and education for sustainable development
III/. Modelling of interaction between climate system / human system 1/. “Level” model; 2/. “Field” model; 3/. Integrative model: climate system / human system;
IV. Key theoretical issues: Reversibility/irreversibility, Unpredictability/uncertainty, Risk, Evolution, Time scales, Spatial scales, Hazards, Hierarchy, Basic needs, Conflicts, Laws, Continuity/discontinuity, Adaptation, Transformation, Resilience, Cognition, Behaviour, Extinction, Chaos, Systems-thinking, Strategic planning, Complexity, etc.
Position[edit | edit source]
We define climate system in accordance with the IPCC Fifth Assessment Report (AR5, 2014) as “a highly complex system consisting of five major components: the atmosphere, the hydrosphere, the cryosphere, the land surface and the biosphere, and the interactions between them.” Climate change is also defined according to the IPCC Fifth Assessment Report (AR5, 2014) as “a statistically significant variation in either the mean state of the climate or in its variability, persisting for an extended period (typically decades or longer). Climate change may be due to natural internal processes or external forcing, or to persistent anthropogenic changes in the composition of the atmosphere or in land use”. We define human system partly as “a system in which human organizations play a major role. Often, but not always, the term is synonymous with "society" or "social system" (e.g., agricultural system, political system, technological system, economic system).” (IPCC Fifth Assessment Report (AR5, 2014). We enlarge this definition to include humans as being situated between a biological existence and the indispensable use of the bio-physical and climatic systems in order to maintain their way of life. We also situate the individual in the human system. Taking into account the complexity of the CSHSI project, the research team will take a neutral scientific position
Societal challenges[edit | edit source]
The CSHSI e-laboratory will provide important findings about sustainable development, incorporating climatic, societal and individual parameters that take into account territorial as well as global systems. It will focus on extreme situations and on perspectives and limits of prevention, adaptation and transformation as well. The project allows local experiences and individual characteristics to be included in an integrative model.
