Indicators for Climate Change Risk Screening

The EO-based climate services of the EO4SD Climate Resilience Cluster will adopt a comprehensive view of risk as promoted by the IPCC’s risk model (see diagram on the right). This also means integrating EO-based, socioeconomic, and other relevant data in order to achieve a holistic view of climate-related risks.

The combination of climate indicators – comprised of EO-based data, in-situ data, and climate projections – with socioeconomic indicators, provides information about actual climate risks. This in turn can be applied to climate-resilient decision making in development cooperation.
