ADRIADAPT aims at promoting local and regional resilience by developing the knowledge base required to identify suitable climate adaptation and planning options, thereby enabling local authorities to respond to policy needs related to climate action in urban and coastal zones of the project area (coastal regions of Italy and Croatia along the Adriatic Sea).
The Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S) currently includes operational predictions for seasonal timescales, as well as infrastructure for accessing climate projections for centennial timescales. In this project prototype services for climate predictions targeting the time horizon of years to decades ahead will be developed. The goal is to develop precursors for decadal prediction services targeting the time horizon when climate variability and anthropogenic climate change are expected to have comparable magnitude, and thus both need to be carefully considered and combined in creating outlooks of relevance to users. The work in this tender will demonstrate capability and applicability of predictive information on such timescales and complement related activities underway in the research community. Each partner, DWD (Germany), BSC (Spain), UKMO (United Kingdom) and CMCC (Italy), will work on a different climate service tailored to the needs of a specific stakeholder, thus covering four different sectors, respectively: infrastructure, agriculture, insurance and the energy sector. In particular, CMCC collaborates with ENEL Hydropower to develop a prototype service based on multi-model decadal predictions.
COACCH (CO-designing the Assessment of Climate CHange costs) is a project funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme and carried out by a consortium of 14 European organisations. COACCH will develop an innovative science-practice and integrated approach to co-design and co-deliver an improved downscaled assessment of the risks and costs of climate change in Europe, working with end users from research, business, investment, and policy making communities throughout the project.
The ETC/CCA is a Consortium of European institutions that supply thematic expertise to the European Environment Agency (EEA) working at the interface between science and policy, in support to policy development and implementation in the area of climate change impacts, vulnerability and adaptation across Europe.
Through the use of High Performance Computing, HIGHLANDER will make it possible to process data and generating climate forecasts and projections to reduce the risks associated with climate change, for a more intelligent and sustainable management of natural resources and the territory.
DG Climate Action awarded this tender to a group of 4 partners lead by CMCC. SAM-PS project focuses in a broad and comprehensive manner on adaptation modelling. Its overall objective is to support better-informed decision-making on adaptation, which is among the priority areas of the EU Strategy on adaptation to climate change.
