The widespread influences of climate on the major agendas mean that provision of climate services can make communities, critical infrastructure, businesses and ecosystems more resilient to climate impacts. The demand for accessible, tailored and accurate services will continue to grow in the years to come driven by concerns over climate change and the occurrence of extreme events.

Climate services provide science-based and user-specific information for managing the risks and exploiting the opportunities created by climate variability and climate change. They assist policymakers and decision-makers responsible for climate-sensitive sectors to take practical actions based on the best available climate related information. A coherent understanding of the economic and social benefits of climate services is a necessary step towards the complete exploitation of their potential positive effects on societies.

This presentation shows how the economic evaluation of climate services is consistent in a co-generation framework, where both service developers and final users participate, creating a feedback loop which helps the evolution of the climate services over time. Nonetheless, there is not a fit-for-all-purpose methodology to assess the value of the information embedded in climate services. To demonstrate the role of evaluation in the co-generation process, the key-role of both producers and users, as well as likely methodologies to use, we present some first insights from the CLARA project.

Elisa Delpiazzo

Elisa Delpiazzo holds a Ph.D. in Economic Policy with major in Quantitative Methods for Economic Policies from the Catholic University in Milan (2011). She gets a master degree in Economics, Politics and International Institutions from the University of Pavia (2006).

Elisa is Junior Scientist at CMCC@Cà Foscari in the ECIP (Economic analysis of Climate Impacts and Policies) division, where she works on mtitgation and adaptation policies evaluation using CGE models. Previously, she has collaborated with Fondazione ENI Enrico Mattei since 2013.

Elisa is currently involved in two H2020 projects dealing with climate service, namely EU-MACS and CLARA, and a H2020 project dealing with climate predictions, i.e. the EUCP project.

 

The webinar is organized by CLARA Project in collaboration with CMCC Foundation (Euro-Mediterranean Center on Climate Change) and Climateurope Project.
