Executive Summary

This document outlines the definitions for various terms that will be employed throughout the RESIN project.

The definitions stem directly from RESIN’s State of the Art reports (Deliverable 1.1) with some minor modifications to harmonize with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) definitions outlined in their most recent assessment report (AR5) (IPCC 2014). This deliverable is strongly linked to the RESIN Conceptual Framework (Deliverable 1.3).

This document is a living document, and the definitions will be refined and adapted as the RESIN project progresses.
