Please note: The terms and their definitions have been established for specific project purposes. Therefore, some terms are listed more than once and offer different definitions and different approaches, e.g. scientific and theory-based definitions, policy-oriented definitions or definitions for communication purposes in practical contexts. 

For each entry there is a link to the resource website which presents the context and the scope of the relevant term for which it has been defined.
