Co-produce human-centred climate services that bridge scientific data and local knowledge, helping society adapt to and mitigate the impacts of climate change.
Innovating Climate Services through Integrating Scientific and Local Knowledge
The I-CISK project aims to develop personalised climate services that are tailored to the specific needs, perceptions and contexts of different groups of users, including local residents, stakeholders, citizens and decision-makers. This initiative will focus on the joint production of climate information products and services that are understandable, feasible and relevant to stakeholders.
By addressing the challenges in current climate services and enhancing the understanding of climate change impacts and adaptation actions, I-CISK prioritizes user involvement at every stage, from identifying needs to implementing solutions, thereby fostering long-term resilience to climate change.
The ICISK project features living laboratories established in various European climate change hotspots, serving as real-world settings for developing and testing the co-produced climate services. These labs actively involve local citizens, decision-makers, and stakeholders, enabling the direct application and evaluation of climate services tailored to address specific regional climate challenges and adaptation needs.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 101037293.
