How SECLI-FIRM has helped advance climate services together with other EU projects: highlights, lessons learnt and outlook
Weather and climate affect every aspect of our daily lives, business and financial operations. In light of global climate change and increasing unpredictability of seasonal climate patterns and extreme weather events, there is an ever-growing need for more accessible, accurate and reliable information to support a wide range of decision-making processes. This has been the focus of the EU H2020 SECLI-FIRM Project for four years.
The SECLI-FIRM project aims to demonstrate how the use of improved climate forecasts can add practical and economic value to decision-making processes and outcomes in the energy and water sectors.
The project concludes in October 2021 and the final conference shares the highlights, lessons learned and outlook – as the project looks to the future.
