EU-MACS synthesis report D5.1.

The first EU-MACS synthesis report is published (D5.1.). D5.1 focuses on generating: (1) a systematic overview of obstacles and mechanisms affecting the uptake of climate services, (2) a systematic overview of policies and measures meant to alleviate the obstacles, and (3) a preliminary assessment of the effectiveness of identified policies and measures and their interactions.

It inter alia emphasizes the importance of creating incentives for uptake of CS through regulation on transparency and accountability for physical risks of climate change and climate variability. Also consistent and complete open data policies are important in this respect. Innovation in business models and more attention for business models among public providers of climate services are also important building blocks, not the least in connection with public-private partnerships. The market for climate services is complex and very much still evolving.
