Maps, data, and information on high-resolution climate scenarios for twenty-six climate indicators. CMCC contributes to the National Platform for Adaptation to Climate Change, and has made the research results available in an easily accessible form to assess the risks associated with climate change in various sectors and areas.

Following the approval of the Italian National Climate Change Adaptation Platform (PNACC), CMCC developed an important initiative aimed at providing data, indicators, and tools to understand and address the impacts of climate change in Italy, and to support the adaptation journey of various national communities.

These tools, developed by CMCC in the form of interactive maps, also contain information presented in the national climate framework included in the PNACC. The maps are based on data from the Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S), and aim to provide an overview of the evolution of different climate indicators that can be useful for assessing climate risk across various sectors.

The maps are accessible through the Dataclime system, managed by CMCC, allow simplified access to data and thus can also support non-specialized users. Dataclime offers an intuitive interface for viewing and analyzing climate information, facilitating access and understanding for a wider audience. This free service, accessible through registration on Dataclime, represents a valuable resource for industry experts, policymakers, and the general public.

The ‘Dataclime cards’ provide high-resolution climate scenarios for Italy through intuitive and accessible data visualizations, even for non-experts in the field. These cards consist of maps of climate characteristics that are particularly relevant for assessing the risks associated with climate change in various sectors and areas.

The maps cover a wide variety of key climate indicators (26 in total), including temperature increases, the study of changes in intense precipitation, and heatwaves. These indicators report the variation of data for two future periods (2036-2065 and 2071-2100), compared to a reference thirty-year period (1981-2010).

Furthermore, CMCC continues to promote the sharing and use of climate data for scientific purposes through initiatives such as the publication of precipitation data related to the extreme meteorological event in Emilia-Romagna in May 2023. These data, made available on Dataclime, are a valuable resource for researching and understanding the impacts of climate change at the local and national levels. Facilitating access to high-quality data is essential to stimulate innovation and the development of effective adaptive solutions.
