Horizon 2020 Climate Action – CORDIS Results Packs

Climate services turn scientific knowledge on climate variability and change into actionable information that can be exploited by a wide range of users, including public authorities, businesses and the public. The information allows the users to account for the effects of climate change into their decision making, thereby minimising risks and seizing available opportunities to achieve a more resilient society and economy.

The CORDIS Results Pack “How climate services can help decision taking in a changing climate: Stories from Horizon 2020 projects” aims to raise awareness of climate services among decision-makers by show casing fourteen European funded projects and the help they can provide in efforts to adapt to climate change. An added value is the presentation of results through the eyes of actual end-users who were involved in the development and testing of the tools to give first-hand experience of benefits and caveats.

The stories presented capture a wide range of possible uses of climate services, such as insurance decisions, disaster risk, water and snow management, urban and regional planning, crop and pest management, or assuring energy and healthcare.
