­Content:

  • A general presentation of the JPI climate
  • A panel with fours speakers explaining the four modules:
    • Moving towards Reliable Decadal Climate Predictions
    • Researching Climate Service Development and Deployment
    • Sustainable Transformations of Society in the Face of Climate Change
    • Decision-support methods and tools for Climate Change

The session will address these question:
Is sufficient knowledge available to decision-makers for them to make properly informed choices to meet climate policy goals?
Are current research programmes adequately addressing the gaps in policy-relevant knowledge?Does international collaboration enhance project quality and relevance, or does it make research more complicated?
Are current or planned research budget sufficient to meet society’s demands?

Panel with speakers:

  • Moving towards Reliable Decadal Climate Predictions: Sylvie Joussaume and Sanna Sorvari
  • Researching Climate Service Development and Deployment: Dagmar Bley
  • Sustainable Transformations of Society in the Face of Climate Change: Lisa Almesjö, Sebastian Helgenberger
  • Decision-support methods and tools for Climate Change: Gregor Laumann
