Climate Services - Underpinning Science | PICO
Convener: Alessandro Dell'Aquila  | Co-Conveners: Carlo Buontempo , Mathew Stiller-Reeve , Daniela Domeisen , Marta Bruno Soares , Nube Gonzalez-Reviriego

Climate services challenge the traditional interface between users and providers of climate information as it requires the establishment of a dialogue between subjects, who often have limited knowledge of each-other’s activities and practices. Increasing the understanding and usability of climate information has become a major challenge and opportunity particularly since economic growth and societal development crucially depend on delivering effective adaptation to climate variability and change.
Climate services -and its surrounding dialogue- help to create user-relevant climate information, increase understanding of climate vulnerabilities, and contribute to developing appropriate adaptation solutions.
This session aims to gather best practices and lessons learnt on how climate services can successfully facilitate and support adaptation to climate variability and change by providing climate information that is tailored to users’ needs.
Contributions are strongly encouraged from international efforts (GFCS, CSP, …); European Initiatives (H2020, ERA4CS, C3S, JPI-Climate…) as well as national, regional and local experiences.
