The importance of land-atmosphere biophysical interactions for regional climate and terrestrial ecosystem change - Improved understanding to inform Swedish national climate action

2020

Authors: Wilhelm May | Paul A. Miller | Benjamin Smith

ISBN: 978-91-984349-3-4 (print) 
ISBN: 978-91-984349-4-1 (pdf) 

About the report: The synthesis aims to lay the foundation for an improved understanding of the biophysical influence of land-use and land-cover changes on regional climate and terrestrial ecosystem change in Sweden, and to outline a roadmap for developing tools that support the formulation of policies and decision-making by policymakers, taking these potentially significant effects into account. The additional information and support tools will enable holistic assessments of the Swedish national climate policy for regional climate and terrestrial ecosystems.

Climate Services – Mapping of Providers and Purveyors in the Netherlands and Sweden 

2014

Authors: Terese Göransson, Markku Rummukainen

Key words: climate services, climate information, climate data, the Netherlands, Sweden

ISBN: 978-91-981577-3-4

About the report: This report is a result of a cooperation project between Lund University in Sweden and the Koninklijk Nederlands Meteorologisch Instituut, KNMI, in the Netherlands. The overall aim of the project was to provide an initial mapping of providers and purveyors of climate services in the Netherlands and Sweden. In total, 64 organisations participated in the study, through questionnaire replies and/or interviews. The report presents the results of the mapping, including the use of the term climate services, existing climate services portfolios, how these services are developed and how they are communicated to the users of the services. It compares the Swedish and Dutch landscapes of the climate services provision, and also discusses their potential gaps and possible ways of enhancing the provision of climate services.
