Abstract

As the need for climate action increases in terms of timing, nature and scope there is a commensurate call for knowledge and information that can enable such action consistent with policy targets. The European Climate Change Adaptation Conference ECCA2021 virtual session ‘At your Service: Climate knowledge and information as enablers for climate action' engaged users and providers of these enablers to seek views and insights as to how knowledge and information are and could better inform and inspire the required action for climate adaptation, resilience and mitigation. The intention of this engagement was to identify successes and where urgent and priority action is needed to enhance the relevance, quality and use of that knowledge and information. The results of deliberations revealed perceptions of successes and actions needed under the four ECCA2021 themes – sharing knowledge, inspiring action on transformation, creating connections and collaborations, and implementing action. Central to most of the highlighted successes and required action is the need to re-imagine the knowledge and information being provided and how they are used to be consistent with and supportive of the evolving nature and scope of required climate action.
