ISIpedia

Inter-sectoral impacts encyclopedia

 

Objective:

ISIpedia, the open inter-sectoral impacts encyclopedia, aims to become a key point of reference for accessing consistent, multi-sector, politically-relevant and user-driven climate-impact simulations. Users of the online platform should gain access to relevant input-data sets and analysis of the underlying impact-model simulations, as well as written and visual syntheses of regionally-resolved climate-impact projections. The project covers the establishment of a cooperative process between relevant interest and stakeholder groups, political decision makers and scientists with respect to 1) the selection of the focus topic for model simulations that will be conducted within this project; and 2) the selection of relevant metrics for quantifying impacts of climate change, which will be calculated using the model simulations. The first of these tasks will form the basis for the development of the simulation protocol for Inter-Sectoral Impact Model Intercomaprison Projects (ISIMIP, www.isimip.org). The project includes the coordination of the simulation activities, which provide the basis for all further analyses within the project.
