The objective of WP1 is “to involve practitioners, suppliers, purveyors and technology providers, scientists and potential end users (customers) in the climate service co-creation and deliver the CLARITY CSIS software and workflows in support of the climate-resilience planning.”. On top of this, WP1 also facilitates the technical management of the whole project, provides the necessary repositories for hosting of the CLARITY software code, data and services as well as a set of tools to support the development of industrial-quality code.
Overarching objective of CLARITY is to demonstrate the benefit of climate services for climate proofing of vulnerable large-scale investments such as urban infrastructure. According to the DoA, the six underlying measurable objectives of the CLARITY project are:
Urban areas and traffic infrastructures that are linking such areas are highly vulnerable to climate change. Smart use of existing climate intelligence can increase urban resilience and generate benefits for businesses and society at large.
The International Conference on Urban Climate, which takes place every three years and was organized for the 10th time, provides a focused platform for scientists from around the globe. This year ‘s conference theme was Sustainable and Resilient Urban Environments.
