Objective of the event

To generate an exchange on the potential of different existing climate data visualisation tools, highlighting their role in facilitating access to key information for planning adaptation measures, identifying lessons learned and recommendations for Latin America.


Brief description

The event aims to: 

  • To present the experiences of the IPCC Interactive Atlas, the AdapteCCa viewer and the Climate Change Scenario viewers and the Central American Severe Weather Virtual Centre (generated in the framework of EUROCLIMA+), as tools for visualising future climate data and scenarios.
  • To exchange experiences from Ecuador (geo-viewer of climate scenarios and risks, supported by EUROCLIMA+) and Chile (climate risk atlas), in the generation of tools that include key information on climate risks and their role in the planning of adaptation measures.
  • To identify lessons learned and recommendations for the region
