CLIMRUN - Climate Local Information in the Mediterranean Region Responding to User Needs

Project description

The Mediterranean area is a recognized climate change hot spot, i.e. a region particularly sensitive and vulnerable to global warming. It is due to scientific climate models which are predicting with more than 90% certainty that average temperatures in Mediterranean will raise 4 degrees Celsius, while the severe water stress will be at 30% (from 19% at present). We will be faced with heat waves and droughts much more often and with more severe consequences then now. To be able to cope with severances of changes i.e. to adopt, we need to know more and to understand about the climate change and how it will impact sectors important for our lives.


General aims of the project are:

  • Design and implementation of a protocol for optimizing the two-way information transfer between climate experts and stakeholders
  • Advancement of the science underpinning the production of detailed climate information at regional to local scales tailored for stakeholder needs
  • Test of the protocol via its application to a number of real world case studies
