Climate change is an issue relevant for all modes of transport. The interconnected nature of transport systems – and their dependence on other key services such as energy – mean that the transport sector must account for both direct and indirect effects of climate change in sector-focused climate risk assessments.
To respond to sector-focused climate information needs in Europe, the “PRIMAVERA” project aims to provide useful and usable climate information, derived from high-resolution, global climate models. The model simulations will be evaluated to assess their ability to simulate key climate processes and hence to add value to existing climate risk assessment methods.
PRIMAVERA is engaging with users and stakeholders across sectors, including transport. Here we give information on transport users’ needs for climate risk assessment. We outline how PRIMAVERA could address these needs, and how it will share relevant outcomes with users and stakeholders, including those in transport.
