“Valuing Climate Services in the Co-Generation Framework. Evidences from the CLARA Project”

Elisa Delpiazzo – Fondazione CMCC – Centro Euro-Mediterraneo sui Cambiamenti Climatici and Cà Foscari University of Venice

Jaroslav Mysiak – Coordinator of the CLARA Project, Fondazione CMCC – Centro Euro-Mediterraneo sui Cambiamenti Climatici and Cà Foscari University of Venice

The webinar is organized in collaboration with the project CLARA PROJECT  and with the support of CMCC Foundation

The widespread influences of climate on the major agendas mean that provision of climate services can make communities, critical infrastructure, businesses and ecosystems more resilient to climate impacts. The demand for accessible, tailored and accurate services will continue to grow in the years to come driven by concerns over climate change and the occurrence of extreme events.

Climate services provide science-based and user-specific information for managing the risks and exploiting the opportunities created by climate variability and climate change. They assist policymakers and decision-makers responsible for climate-sensitive sectors to take practical actions based on the best available climate related information. A coherent understanding of the economic and social benefits of climate services is a necessary step towards the complete exploitation of their potential positive effects on societies.

This webinar shows how the economic evaluation of climate services is consistent in a co-generation framework, where both service developers and final users participate, creating a feedback loop which helps the evolution of the climate services over time.

Nonetheless, there is not a fit-for-all-purpose methodology to assess the value of the information embedded in climate services. To demonstrate the role of evaluation in the co-generation process, the key-role of both producers and users, as well as likely methodologies to use, we present some first insights from the CLARA project (Climate forecast enabled knowledge services).

Climateurope is a Europe-wide network for researchers, suppliers, and users of climate information. It is a place to share best practices, gaps, and recommendations and discover the state of the art of climate observations, modelling and services. The Climateurope webinar series is organized once every month. In each webinar, there will be two talks by invited speakers followed by a discussion centered in two main questions of interest for the climate services and climate research community.

Join the webinars to get the latest information on the state-of-the-art in the field of climate modelling and services and help to give direction to future climate research. If you want to receive information on the coming webinars please visit Climateurope website or join our network.
