Cordis Service Pack on Climate Services published in November 2020
How climate services can help decision taking in a changing climate: Stories from Horizon 2020 projects: Climate services turn scientific knowledge on climate variability and change into actionable information that can be exploited by a wide range of users, including public authorities, businesses and the public. The information allows the users to account for the effects of climate change into their decision making, thereby minimising risks and seizing available opportunities to achieve a more resilient society and economy. This CORDIS Results Pack focuses on 10 EU-funded projects that have developed vital tools and expertise to help mitigate the impacts of a changing climate through the application of climate services.
