Process-based models for climate impact attribution across sectors

Many complex process-based models are available to project future climate impacts. Yet, the current climate impact research community is fragmented, modeling mostly individual systems. This lack of coordination amongst impact modelers as well as insufficient awareness about impact attribution methods hampers important scientific and political progress and more coordination and networking is urgently needed.

Therefore and in close cooperation with ISIMIP, PROCLIAS aims to develop common protocols, harmonized datasets and a joint understanding of how to conduct cross-sectoral, multi-model climate impact studies at regional and global scales allowing for attribution of impacts of recent climatic changes and robust projections of future climate impacts.

The COST Action will do so by focusing on key interactions of climate impacts across sectors, their accumulated effect, especially of extreme events, the attribution of impacts to climate change and the quantification of uncertainties.
