Communicating climate uncertainty

A workshop to discuss how to communicate uncertainties in climate information.

Summary

On November 30, the Climateurope2 project organized a workshop on Uncertainty to discuss how users of climate information deal with uncertainties and how providers of climate services should communicate about uncertainties in ways that enable users to extract the information they need. 


During the morning session, our speakers presented different perspectives on climate uncertainty communication:

  • National climate forecast perspective: Janette Bessembinder, KNMI
  • Concept of risk as uncertainty: Andreas Hafver, DNV
  • Decision making on different timescales of climate uncertainty: Christopher Jack, Red Cross


Following the presentations, there was a panel discussion including:

  • Janette Bessembinder, KNMI
  • Christopher Jack, Red Cross
  • Siegfried Eisinger, DNV

In the afternoon,  a forum for participant discussions aimed to collect examples of communicating climate uncertainty and use cases ilustrate how climate services can support climate-informed decisions.
