What are climate projections used for?
Climate projections are important for assessing possible climate changes and evaluating the resulting risks and opportunities. They thus help to develop and plan adaptation measures for different sectors or regions. There are a number of different organizations that have already produced regional climate projections for Germany. The support of model developments through various BMBF research programs, such as Euro-Cordex and ReKlies-DE, plays an outstanding role.
Data and information on climate projections for Germany are available from the German Climate Computing Center: https://www.dkrz.de/, for example the data from the ReKliEs-De-project (Regional Climate Projections Ensemble for Germany).
