Climate Information Portal

Publication date:
Knowledge partner:

Over the last 3-4 years the Climate Change Explorer (CCE) has proved to a very useful tool and, led by our partners at the University of Cape Town, the weADAPT partners have learnt very valuable lessons about the way in which climate change information is and can be used to inform decision-making by those who are not climate scientists.We have recognised some important limitations to the CCE tool and therefore the Climate Systems Analysis Group (CSAG) have been working to develop a new web-based service, called the Climate Information Portal (CIP)*, that replaces the CCE tool and builds in a number of new functionalities. This includes providing: station level data on historical climate conditions and downscaled projections of future climates; gridded data from Regional and Global Climate Models; various graphical representations of this data; and a much expanded set of guidance materials on how to interpret the outputs
