Co-development of place-based climate services for climate related (re-) action in coastal regions


Project timeline
September 2017
37 months

General Information
CO-CLI-SERV will identify future information and the nature of the climate science needs to address the local communities’ concerns, aspirations and goals in view of climate variability and climate change. It will develop a novel approach for co-constructing climate services to support local planning and adaptation decision-making. CO-CLI-SERV will establish a collaborative relationship between climate science and local communities in five representative case studies in Norway, France, the Netherlands and Germany. CO-CLI-SERV’s approach is its focus on narratives of change as a localisation device. Grounded in such narratives, vision-based scenarios will be developed by employing an incremental and community-led strategy, enabling the identification of current AND future knowledge needs. The project will experiment with art–science–policy integration in the case studies. Building on existing climate science and practices, CO-CLI-SERV will instigate and sustain community dialogues to co-construct place-based climate services.
Hereon leads the work package entitled “Local climate information in context”. CO-CLI-SERV is funded in the frame of the Horizon 2020 ERANET ERA4CS (European Research Area for Climate Services).
