New CEC report about Climate Services
This report is a result of a cooperation project between Lund University in Sweden and the Koninklijk Nederlands Meteorologisch Instituut, KNMI, in the Netherlands. The overall aim of the project was to provide an initial mapping of providers and purveyors of climate services in the Netherlands and Sweden. In total, 64 organisations participated in the study, through questionnaire replies and/or interviews.
The report presents the results of the mapping, including the use of the term climate services, existing climate services portfolios, how these services are developed and how they are communicated to the users of the services. It compares the Swedish and Dutch landscapes of the climate services provision, and also discusses their potential gaps and possible ways of enhancing the provision of climate services.
