Short description: Climate change has become an increasingly important area in the EU’s framework research and development (R&D) programmes. It is a priority in the forthcoming 7th Research Framework Programme, which will run from 2007 to 2013. In this context, three Directorates-General of the European Commission - Research, Environment and the Joint Research Centre - jointly organised a workshop in Brussels on 25-26 September 2006 to discuss climate change impacts on the water cycle, and to review research and policy and thus pave the way for the development of an adequate policy-research interface. The workshop tied in well with international discussions. The impact of climate change on water, adaptation and mitigation strategies was a key component at the second meeting of the Parties to the Kyoto Protocol (COP/MOP 2) in Nairobi from 6 to 17 November 2006. The issue will also be discussed in depth at the International Conference on Climate Change and the Water Dimension, which will be held in Berlin on 12-13 February 2007 under the German Presidency. The workshop in Brussels had a strategic impact on the research and policy communities in that it defined interactions between science and policy on climate change and water and discussed what scientists know about climate change - and the areas of uncertainty - and ways in which scientific outputs could be translated into policies. Whether you are active in – or interested in – the scientific or political sides of this important topic, we trust you will find this report of the results of the workshop of considerable interest.
