Presentation Transcript

Why? Adaptation

  • Climate risk management is currently focused on timescales of < 1 year and > 20 years

  • Many policy, planning and investment decisions occur on timescales of 1-20 years

  • Climate change is accelerating – emerging risks and variability

    • Need to merge adaptation and risk reduction on these “real world” time scales


What? Adaptation

  • Development of “seamless” climate forecasts and scenarios for 1 -> 10 -> 20 year timescales

  • Marrying of seasonal and climate change methods, tools and communities

  • Merging of data sources – observational, decadal predictions, centennial projections, downscaling

  • A focus of extreme events

  • Close integration with users in agriculture, water, food security, at multiple levels


Example r esearch questions
Example AdaptationResearch Questions

  • Where, if anywhere, are decadal predictions useful – in which regions, at what time scales, and for which agricultural drivers and communities?

  • At what time horizon does a shift occur from forecasts to scenarios?

  • What are the most appropriate analysis and communication methods, and what can we adopt from the seasonal and climate change scenarios communities?

  • What kinds of adaptation and risk reduction methods in the agriculture and food sector would be appropriate on these timescales?

  • Who are the beneficiaries of multi-year climate data, what are their information needs and to what extent can these needs be met?


Fit to ccafs agenda
Fit to CCAFS Agenda Adaptation

  • Science integration – climate and climate applications, hydrology, agriculture, policy and planning…

  • Development – climate compatible development, disaster risk reduction

  • Climate change agenda – critical timescale gap

  • Agriculture and food – addresses climate as a driver of production, GDP, livelihoods, and planning agricultural adaptation

  • Provide critical information for CG researchers

  • Will link to multiple stakeholders – applied research, policy and planning, industry and farmers

  • Deliver data - using state-of-art methods – on CG-relevant climate change and variability on timescales of 1-20 (30) years
