The widespread influences of climate on the major agendas mean that provision of climate services can make communities, critical infrastructures, businesses and ecosystems more resilient to climate impacts. The demand for accessible, tailored and accurate services will continue to grow in the years to come driven by concerns over climate change and the occurrence of extreme events.

On July 23, 2018 Elisa Delpiazzo, researcher at the CMCC Foundation and Ca’ Foscari University of Venice, showed how the economic evaluation of climate services is consistent in a co-generation framework, where both service developers and final users participate, creating a feedback loop which helps the evolution of the climate services over time.

To demonstrate the role of evaluation in the co-generation process, the key role of both producers and users, as well as likely methodologies to use, she presented in the CMCC webinar some first insights from the CLARA project (Climate forecast enabled knowledge services).

The webinar was organized in collaboration with CLARA Project and Climateurope.
