An authoritative, consistent and decision-oriented platform is still missing to meet the needs of adaptation practitioners concerned with the routine identification of coastal territories at risk from inundation, coastal land use planning, or maintaining coastal infrastructure services.
Why do we need coastal risk assesment?
Even if climate change mitigation objectives agreed in Paris are met, sea level will rise at least by 0.3 to 0.6m in 2100 and then continue rising for centuries. The potential impacts of coastal flooding are a major source of concern for Europe because many infrastructures are located close to shorelines or in low-lying areas. Broad-scale coastal climate services and platforms available today have successfully addressed the need to raise awareness on mitigation.
However, an authoritative, consistent and decision-oriented platform is still missing to meet the needs of adaptation practitioners concerned with the routine identification of coastal territories at risk from inundation, coastal land use planning, or maintaining coastal infrastructure services.
What is CoCliCo Services?
The Coastal Climate Core Service (CoCliCo) project aims at informing decision-making on coastal risk and adaptation, by delivering an open web platform exploring dominant risk drivers, adjusting visualisation and analysis techniques to local decision contexts, and combining relevant and high-quality geospatial information layers. Through the platform, users will be able to visualize, download and analyse multiple decision-oriented coastal risk scenarios relevant to the rich user narratives of our Demonstration Case Studies address the three needs.
To meet this challenge, CoCliCo brings together European organizations and scholars that have proven track records of delivering broad-scale coastal risk and adaptation assessment, as well as leading research and technologies in interoperable geospatial data management, decision sciences, and risk communication.
This project created thanks to a funding from theEuropean Union’s Horizon 2020 research andinnovation programme under grant agreementNo 101003598.
What Can I find in the CoCliCo Website?
Part of work package 7 of this project is the creation of this website, where we will be sharing communication and dissemination activities to inform about the advances and milestones of the creation of the future platform that will be known with the same name. On this website you can find:
