In order to investigate and understand the consequences, causes and effects of climate change, researchers have to work together across disciplines and pass on their knowledge to society and politics. The Earth System Knowledge Platform (ESKP) prepares research results from the Helmholtz Centers on the subjects of "natural hazards", "climate change", "pollutants" and "effects of the energy transition on the environment" in an easily understandable manner for various target groups (including authorities, politics, decision-makers, the press, the population).
