Symposium Climate Information for Adaptation

On 5th of July the symposium ‘Climate Information Services for Adaptation‘ takes place in gardens of the famous Lumen building, in Wageningen University and Research. On this unique one day symposium trends and innovations for developing information to assist decision-making for adaptation are presented.
The symposium aims to address the question: how we can better assist decision-making with climate relevant information?
A wide range of different climate services have been developed over the last decade. While climate information is becoming more and more accessible, many users are still not receiving the information they need. Most climate services also fail to generate the necessary climate action. During this symposium we will discuss how to make climate services more actionable and how the producers of climate services can guide their development more towards the need of the users.
The different keynotes will be presented by international experts.
