BINGO at Adaptation Futures 2016

BINGO is organizing a scientific session together with the project IMPREX at the upcoming conference Adaptation Futures - Practices and Solutions, taking place on 10-13 May in Rotterdam, the Netherlands: “Moving towards tailored climate services in the Water Sector". The session will take place on Thursday, 12 May 2016, between 13.45 and 15.30. 

Summary

Many weather services have been developed for the water sector, and while these services are now firmly established, climate change poses a new challenge. In this session we discuss experiences in innovating climate services, including case studies on flood risk management, reservoir operation and power generation, and European approaches including the Roadmap for Climate Services. Together with the audience we will draw lessons from good practice in water management organisations and weather and climate services providers; discussion of needs to improve access to these services and stimulate joint product development; and discuss improvements in stakeholder interactions by dedicated organisations.

Chair: Laurens Bouwer, Deltares, the Netherlands

Participants:
Bart van den Hurk, KNMI, the Netherlands - Improving prediction and management of hydrological extremes
Rafaela Matos, LNEC, Portugal - BINGO - Bringing innovation to ongoing water management using downscaled climate predictions
Marco Gemmer, European Commission, DG RTD - European Research and Innovation Roadmap on Climate Services: demonstrating the added value of climate services
