About I-CISK

Climate change is one of the defining issues of the 21st century, with the climate becoming more variable and severe weather events such as floods, droughts and extreme heat occurring more frequently. Adaptation to climate change requires climate smart decisions foster resilience to the future climate.

I-CISK’s ambition to innovate how climate information is used, interpreted and acted on through a next-generation of Climate Services that follow a human centred, social and behaviourally informed approach; integrating the knowledges, needs and perceptions of climate information.

7 Living Labs

In I-CISK we take an action research approach to fast-track research to impacts by co-developing a framework for human centred climate services in and with the users of seven Living Labs in Europe and Africa. Each living lab is located in a climate change hotspot with specific geographical and climatic settings, and with a focus on key socio-economic sectors.
