As the world is edging closer to the 1.5 degrees planetary boundary and is failing to adequately cut greenhouse gas emissions, societal actors from all sectors and scales are requested to rapidly devise adequate responses to ensure a liveable future. However, there is a recognised usability gap in climate science, which makes that despite having better quality data, this data...

The aim of the BOREAS project is to blend knowledge from climate predictions and projections to make the Spanish energy sector more resilient to climate variability and climate change, hence contributing to the better management of the current climate and energy crises.

Spain has the objective to reach climate neutrality by 2050, which is part of the...

The EU Member States should step up their climate change adaptation efforts alongside their intensifying mitigation efforts. Next toand in conjunction with physical and organizational measures, that directly reduce climate change risks, insurance and related risk sharing solutions have an important role to play. Innovative insurance solutions and risk sharing are crucially...

Mesophotic coral ecosystems are described as warm water light-dependent corals and associated communities that inhabit depths from 30 m to over 150 m in tropical and subtropical regions. These ecosystems have high ecological relevance as they can act as potential re-seeding areas for shallow ecosystems, harbor endemic and rare species, and provide suitable habitats to support...

As of today, 80% of the data processing and analysis occurs in cloud data centers, and only 20% of processing occurs at the edge. This incipient exploitation of edge resources increases time to value and prevents business processes, decisions, and intelligence from being taken outside of the data center, which prevents Europe from unlocking an entire set of new opportunities...

The GLObal digital twin for RegIonal and local climate Adaptation (GLORIA) proposal is motivated by three challenges identified in the last few years that affect climate modelling for adaptation and mitigation:

1) climate simulations are increasingly demanded but are expensive experiments in terms of computing resources, data storage and human...

IMPETUS4CHANGE (I4C) will make significant scientific advances that will enhance our collective ability to act on and adapt to near-term climate change. The overarching objective of I4C is to improve the quality, accessibility and usability of near-term climate information and services at local to regional scales where impacts are most keenly felt and on-the-ground adaptation...

Compound events (CEs) can pose significant threats to societies, economies and ecosystems around the world, especially when amplified by anthropogenic climate change (ACC). There is therefore a strong need for skilled, reliable and actionable predictions of how CEs are expected to change in the next decades to help governments and stakeholders implement robust adaptation...

This contract will aim at carrying out the European Climate Risk Assessment (EUCRA). The primary policy purposes of EUCRA are:" to support the identification of adaptation-related policy priorities for the next European Commission (to be nominated in 2024)," to support the prioritization of adaptation-related investments for the following multi-annual financial framework...

Despite clear signs that the impacts of climate change are escalating, the global response has been inadequate. Traditional scientific efforts have fallen short of providing knowledge and tools that have been broadly applied in decision-making, and innovative approaches to knowledge translation are needed.

 

To catalyse climate action in Europe to protect public health,...
