Climate Services at work - ERA4CS Projects exchange and networking lab

EASME Horizon 2020 - JPI Climate ERA4CS project networking event 30 November 2017, Brussels


INSeaPTION September/2017 –august 2020 (36 months) Twitter: @INSeaPTION A project funded under ERA4CS Elevator pitch While future sea-level rise is recognized to be a major threat to coasts, sea-level information currently available is not customized to the practice of coastal adaptation. Coastal managers require services tailored to their needs including full information on uncertainties, high-end estimates, accurate storm and flood modeling, shoreline change projections and relevant adaptation options within the context of current practices and governance arrangements. INSeaPTION is a research project, which aims at addressing these limitations by codesigning and co-developing, together with users, coastal climate services based on stateof-the art sea-level rise, impact, adaptation and transdisciplinary science. Specifically, the project will co-design and co-develop the following coastal climate services with several groups of diverse users: - Global to regional coastal climate service, addressing the needs of major companies, international organizations and governments to have globally consistent information on sea-level rise, its impacts and adaptation pathways for long-term locational planning, climate policy making and financing adaptation and loss & damages. - Regional to local coastal climate services addressing the needs of planners and policy makers for local tailored sea-level projections, impact and adaptation information useful for long-term development, infrastructure and land-use planning for two high impact territories: the Maldives and French Polynesia.
