The overall objective of ERA4CS is to enhance user adoption of and satisfaction with Climate Services (incl. adaptation services).
It implies the development of tools, methods and standards to produce reliable information (projections with impact and vulnerability assessments) for various user needs to support smart stakeholder decisions and investment projects, encompassing public, private and community sectors.
At the same time ERA4CS aims to improve the scientific expertise on Climate Change risks and adaptation options, and to connect that knowledge with decision-making, e.g. by developing and assessing climate adaptation strategies and pathways at different scales (regions, cities, catchments, vulnerable sectors, etc.).
It focuses on the development of a “climate information translation” layer including climate information production for CS as well as researching and advancing CS as such.
Improving the quality of Climate Services is also within the scope of ERA4CS Joint Transnational call.
