Cross-sectoral ISIMIP-PROCLIAS workshop was a full success!

Posted by Martin Park on May 20, 2022

Building on the recent publication of the IPCC Working Group 2 Report, roughly 100 on site participants and a further 200 online participants discussed the latest developments in climate impacts science from 16-19 of May 2022 at the Potsdam-Institute for Climate Impact Research. During this joint activity of the COST Action PROCLIAS and the Inter-Sectoral Impact Model Intercomparison Project (ISIMIP), the workshop participants discussed the latest data, protocols and simulation experiments of the third phase of ISIMIP, different approaches to climate impact attribution, the challenging task of assessing cross-sectoral climate impacts as well as how to communicate best to stakeholders.

The conference also featured high level keynotes by Johan Rockström, Catherine Senior, Jakob Zscheischler, Camille Parmesan and Brian O'Neill, as well as a wide range of workshops and activities, such as an expert elicitation to find plausible ranges for the hundreds of ISIMIP output variables, or a high-level panel discussing the issue of hot climate models in the latest CMIP6 ensemble. We are grateful to all speakers and participants for making this workshop a great success.
