PA51C - Enhancing the Value Proposition of Hydrometeorological Forecasts to Inform Multisectoral Decision-Making eLightning
Other Events

Many flood and drought forecast products have now adopted a risk-based communication approach toward better informing decision-making. The process of adoption for those climate products includes the demonstration of the increased accuracy as well as the value of the risk-based information, which comes down to customized communication, and sometimes rethinking the processing of this new information. In a multi sectoral context, hydro-climate information is typically processed,  and simplified, to complement other drivers of decision-making; evolving policies, energy market, technology innovation, etc. How can we enhance the use and value of hydro-climate information in day-ahead and long term planning strategies across activity sectors? The overarching goal of the session is to understand the perceived value of climate services and discuss the value proposition for a range of sectors. We invite researchers and practitioners to discuss how hydro-climate forecasts are being or could be customized, valued and communicated into multi-sectoral decision-support processes.
