IPCC Workshop on Regional Climate Projections and their Use in Impacts and Risk Analysis Studies
Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC); IPCC Workshop on Regional Climate Projections and their Use in Impacts and Risk Analysis Studies (15-18 September 2015)
Regional climate change projections provide the quantitative basis for studies of projected impacts from climate change and associated risks, which are essential building blocks for the comprehensive assessment of climate change science by the IPCC. There exist a number of climate modelling initiatives aimed at producing regional climate change projections, but they overall have not yet reached the maturity necessary for their wide spread use by the impacts and risk assessment community and relevant stakeholders. This Workshop was an opportunity to strengthen the link between the assessment of regional projections and projected impacts and risks with the goal to enhance the information IPCC can provide its users and stakeholders. The Workshop brought together experts from both the Working Group I and Working Group II communities, including from the climate modelling community (e.g., CMIP5 and CMIP6), the regional modelling and downscaling community (e.g., CORDEX) and the climate impacts and risk community. This will help establish closer links between these communities and facilitate the cross-Working Group work in the IPCC Sixth Assessment Report.
