Growing opportunities in climate change adaptation

EUFIWACC climate risk information day for consultants

Development banks increasingly need to assess the risks posed by a changing climate, in order to safeguard adaptation investment decisions.

Within this context the Climate Service Center 2.0 in cooperation with the European Financing Institutions Working Group on Climate Change Adaptation (EUFIWACC) are holding an information day. Consultants, who carry out climate risk assessments for EUFIWACC members, are increasingly required to make concrete statements about climate risks.

This information day is intended to provide a forum for dialogue and exchange, to further strengthen the process of delivering climate risk assessments. To this end, EUFIWACC members will report on the current requirements and expectations of the banks.

Session 50: Climate Services and Communication - A framework for regional modeling- supporting adaptation to climate change

At this workshop, possible settings of modelling frameworks, which help steering the development of regional systems, will be identified by multidisciplinary teams of practitioners, scientists and stakeholders. The available knowledge should be used and gaps in the model chains should be identified. First experience, as well as some open questions, gathered from the Roundtable discussion on the occasion of the conference ”Deltas in times of climate change” will be integrated.
