Climate innovation supports transitions to low-carbon and climate resilient societies, and plays a crucial role for delivering on the pledges of the Paris Agreement on Climate Change. Tailor-made and users’ co-developed climate services provide better information on past, present and future climate variability and change, and improve public and private decisions making.
Generation, diffusion and adaptation of innovative technologies and policy practices to local circumstances is a shared concern of public administrations and businesses. But the innovation processes and services need to be co-designed, building upon scientific knowledge and business intelligence, end-user needs and made accountable to local societal challenges and priorities.
