The Climate Service unit at the Competence Center is charged with organizing an observation network in member countries that will lead to consistent and quality information on weather and the hydrological cycle, as well as changes in land use, human coping strategies and biodiversity shifts or loss. This panel data will provide the backbone for climate models that will allow projections of climate impact under various scenarios. A planning and policy network ensures that the science-based adaptation options generated in the Research Program are discussed and evaluated with the relevant stakeholders before they are formulated as policy and management actions.
