 Obiettivo del progetto (Objective)

'Recent advances in our understanding and forecasting of climate and climate change have brought us to the point where skilful and useful predictions are being made. These forecasts hold the potential for being of great value for a wide range of decision-makers who are affected by the vagaries of the climate and who would benefit from understanding and better managing climate-related risks. However, such climate information is currently under-used, mis-used, or not used at all. Therefore there exists the opportunity to develop new technologies to properly exploit emerging capability from the climate community, and more importantly, to engage with the users of such technologies to develop useful and useable tools. The EUPORIAS project will develop and deliver reliable predictions of the impacts of future climatic conditions on a number of key sectors (to include water, energy, health, transport, agriculture and tourism), on timescales from seasons to years ahead. The project will do this through a strong engagement with the forecast providers and the users/decision-makers, who are both represented within the project. EUPORIAS will develop climate services and tools targeted to the needs of the users, and will share knowledge to promote the technologies created within the project. EUPORIAS will also improve the users’ understanding of their vulnerability to varying climatic conditions as well as better prepare them to utilise climate forecasts, thereby reducing risks and costs associated with responding to varying climatic conditions. As a result businesses, governments, NGOs, and society in general will be able to better manage risks and opportunities associated with varying climatic conditions, thus becoming more resilient to the variability of the climate. The project will provide the basis for developing a strong climate service market within Europe, offering the opportunity for businesses to capitalise on improved management of weather and climate risks.'

Introduzione (Teaser)

Advances in understanding and forecasting the evolution of climate enable more accurate predictions to be made, thereby providing more valuable information to decision makers. Although better forecasts help improve understanding and management of climate-related risks, this information is currently not being fully exploited.

Descrizione progetto (Article)

The EU-funded project 'European provision of regional impact assessment on a seasonal-to-decadal timescale' (EUPORIAS) will ensure more effective exploitation of climate forecasts. It will enable better use of more reliable climate predictions for one month to five years in the future. The information will be used to determine impacts on key sectors such as water, energy, health, transport, agriculture and tourism. This will be achieved by engaging with both the forecast providers and users, who are well represented in the project.

EUPORIAS is coordinated by the United Kingdom's Met Office together with 23 partners representing world-class European research and climate service centres. They include experts in impact assessments and seasonal predictions, two United Nations (UN) agencies, specialists in new media and commercial companies from climate-vulnerable sectors.

A series of in-depth interviews, dedicated workshops and online surveys have already been conducted to determine the needs of those using climate change information. One important theme to emerge was the need to reduce the gap between the way in which climate information is provided and the formats that users require. Armed with these findings, project partners will develop new technologies and tools to exploit climate information and engage with users.

One of the challenges facing EUPORIAS is the need to help users deal with imperfect forecasts. Common protocols are being developed for impact model simulations and a standard set of data to be used as a benchmark. This will set a sound basis for comparing impact predictions and can be used beyond the project's lifetime.

EUPORIAS will also improve users' understanding of their vulnerability in the face of varying climate conditions and better prepare them to utilise climate forecasts. This will help reduce the risks and costs associated with responding to a changing climate. Therefore, businesses, governments, non-governmental organisations and society in general will be in a stronger position to manage the risks and opportunities resulting from climate change.
