Project

CLIM-RUN : Climate Local Information in the Mediterranean reg

Description:

Full Title: Climate Local Information in the Mediterranean region Responding to User Needs => The CLIM-RUN Project developed a protocol for applying new methodologies and improved modeling and downscaling tools for the provision of adequate climate information at regional to local scale that is relevant to and usable by different sectors of society (policymakers, industry, cities, etc.).

CLIM-RUN has developed a bottom-up protocol directly involving stakeholders early in the process with the aim of identifying well defined needs at the regional to local scale. The protocol was assessed by application to relevant case studies involving interdependent sectors, primarily tourism and energy, and natural hazards (wild fires) for representative target areas (mountainous regions, coastal areas, islands).

CLIM-RUN has also provided the seed for the formation of a Mediterranean basin-side climate service network which would eventually converge into a pan-European network.
