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...

Natural hazards, such as extreme weather events, are exacerbated by climate change. As a result, emergency responses are becoming more protracted, expensive, frequent, and stretching limited available resources. This is especially apparent in rapidly warming regions. MedEWSa addresses these challenges by providing novel solutions to ensure timely, precise, and actionable...

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 deposition of dust and other terrestrial aerosols represents an external supply of nutrients to the ocean surface. This supply helps sustain...

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...

Plastics are one of the most widely used materials, with a wide variety of applications across all sectors of the economy. Its production is estimated to be around 360 million tonnes, and thus synthetic polymer is poorly biodegradable. Plastic life cycle is responsible for greenhouse gas emissions, contributing to climate change, plastic waste has been found in every...

The Copernicus Climate Change Service Evolution (CERISE) project aims to enhance the quality of the C3S reanalysis and seasonal forecast portfolio with a focus on land-atmosphere coupling. It will support the evolution of C3S by improving the C3S climate reanalysis and seasonal prediction systems and products towards enhanced integrity and coherence of the C3S Earth system...

The EERIE answers Horizon Europe call: HORIZON-CL5-2022-D1-02-02: Development of high-resolution Earth system models for global and regional climate change projections.

The project uses four European global climate models to produce new simulations of past and future climate. The representation of ocean processes will be at the cutting edge given that...

Forest fires caused over 54 billion in economic losses in Europe between 2000 and 2017. Spain is one of Europe s most impacted countries with 219 large fires between 2011 and 2020 and damages worth 525 million. These numbers are inevitably bound to rise given the economic growth outlook, expected rise in population, and forecasted climate change impact. The current...

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...
