PROJECT MANAGEMENT

Ensuring timely delivery of quality project results to reach the objectives and contractual commitments.

TOWARDS A MARKET OBSERVATORY

Defining a framework for climate services market observation and facilitation: this includes defining taxonomy and metrics, measuring gaps between the identified supply and demand, qualifying potential innovation to address those gaps, and expressing policy recommendations.

CLIMATE SERVICE PROVIDERS

Climate service providers and purveyors in Europe will be identified and divided into commercial and open
source products:

  • Mapping and qualification of suppliers’ typical business models
  • Overview of key non-European climate services and SWOT analysis of EU providers against international competition

POTENTIAL AND ACTUAL DEMAND

Climate vulnerability and risk will be analysed in order to evaluate their influence on the demand for Climate Services:

  • Assessment of the value and transactional volume of current and potential demand for Climate Services based on a combination of new qualitative and quantitative research methodologies
  • Identification of drivers of market demand and how they may be influenced by interventions (such as building a market observatory)

CASE STUDIES

Qualitative and quantitative analysis of the existing and future demand for climate services will be undertaken. Sectoral characteristics that will be explored through the case studies include:

  • ownership/operation of long-term fixed assets
  • reliance on climatically sensitive natural resources, and
  • association with the European or global climate services market amongst others.

CASE STUDIES

9 case studies will be carried out during the course of the project. Each study will look at a key economic sector in a specific region. The outcomes will provide knowledge that will be applicable to other similar sectors.
