Fact Sheets und Policy briefs

Besides offering advice for decision makers in politics and society at large, the CCCA objectives also include the development and support of knowledge transfer in the academic context and of application-oriented research. As one means of meeting these objectives, the CCCA has made available a number of fact sheets, i.e. summaries of climate change relevant principles and current research findings. The aim of these fact sheets is to provide knowledge for both interested laymen and experts in an understandable and applicable form.

The fact sheets do not exceed two A4 pages in length and can be accessed as German- and English-language pdf files. All fact sheets have undergone an internal peer review process.

Fact Sheet Facts for Potential Authors:

  • length: max. two-A4 pages (equivalent to approximately 7,000-7,500 characters)
  • Key messages: all fact sheets must present a text box with three to five main statements.
  • Pictures / photos / illustrations: at least two pictures (better three) are compulsory in a fact sheet.
  • Target group: "the retired geography teacher" - should mean that the language of a fact sheet should not be too scientific (and not too trivial) - just so that a "retired geography teacher" understands everything quickly but still receives news.
  • Assessment: In order to be able to be published as a CCCA product, a fact sheet must have been appraised by two colleagues from the CCCA network. The CCCA Service Center provides the reviewers.
