EU: Paris Agreement OvershootingReversibility, Climate Impacts and Adaptation Needs


German project description
PROVIDE wird hochinnovative, integrative Klimadienstleistungen liefern, die umfassende Informationen über die Auswirkungen von Overshoot-Pfaden von der globalen bis zur regionalen und städtischen Ebene beinhalten und direkt in Anpassungsmaßnahmen einfließen. Das Projekt zielt insbesondere darauf ab: 1) Globale Multiszenario- und Multisektor-Klimainformationen zu produzieren, die Auswirkungen über Skalen hinweg mittels neuartiger Klima- und Auswirkungsemulatoren integrieren und quantifizieren; 2) Unsicherheiten und Rückkopplungen des Klimasystems 3) Entwicklung einer verallgemeinerbaren Overshoot-Proofing-Methode für Anpassungsstrategien, um Anpassungsmaßnahmen als Reaktion auf Overshoot-Risiken zu verbessern; 4) Identifizierung und Priorisierung des Overshoot-Anpassungsbedarfs in vier sich stark ergänzenden Fallstudienregionen; 5) Integration aller Projektergebnisse in das PROVIDE Climate Service Dashboard.

English project description
PROVIDE will deliver highly innovative, integrative climate services that incorporate comprehensive information on impacts under overshoot pathways from the global to the regional and urban level, directly feeding into adaptation action. The project specifically aims to: 1) Produce global multi-scenario, multi-sectoral climate information which integrates and quantifies impacts across scales by means of novel climate and impact emulators; 2) Assess climate system uncertainties and feedbacks, and the (ir)reversibility of climate impacts to provide comprehensive risk assessments of overshooting; 3) Co-develop a generalisable overshoot proofing methodology for adaptation strategies to enhance adaptation action in response to overshoot risks; 4) Identify and prioritise overshoot adaptation needs in four highly complementary case study regions; 5) Integrate all project outcomes into a PROVIDE Climate Service Dashboard. The PROVIDE consortium is constituted of leading climate scientists as well as climate services purveyors, urban planners and adaptation experts embedded in selected case study regions facilitating a continuous co-development process with a wide array of stakeholders.
