What does co-development of PUNI methods mean?
- PUNI stands for Providing and Utilizing eNsemble Information
- CO-MICC provides useful and useable information for climate change (CC) risk assessment and adaptation to CC
- Ensemble information: Output of an ensemble of global hydrological models (GHMs): hazard = potential future change of hydrological variables/indicators due to CC, with spatial resolution of 0.5°
- Uncertainty quantification
Who develops the PUNI methods?
- knowledge translators and disseminators = “CC-risk experts/boundary organizations“ (upper level, main users of the portal) e.g.: Experts in ministries of the states (water resources, agriculture), meteorological services (climate change departments)
- research centres (universities and national research centres)
- those who need to assess CC risks and adapt (lower level, stakeholders/end-users who get advice from A and may use the portal with info’s for non-experts) e.g.: farmers, water users (cities), industries
Which regions are addressed within CO-MICC?
- From local to global: CO-MICC delivers data on a spatial scale of 0.5° and analyzes basins larger than 20000 km²
- Local scale: The Ebro catchment in Spain
- Regional (transboundary) scale: the MAT region (Morocco, Algeria, Tunesia) with a focus on the following basins: Moulouya (Morocco-Algeria), Chelif (Algeria), Medjerda (Algeria-Tunisia)
- Global scale
How does CO-MICC address risk assessment?
Which kind of data will be addressed?
Only model data from ensemble simulations of large-scale hydrological models, compatible with the ISIMIP protocol (https://www.isimip.org/).
