General concept

ISI-MIP is intended to provide a framework to collate a consistent set of climate impact data across sectors and scales. This will serve as a basis for model evaluation and improvement, allowing for improved estimates of the biophysical and socio-economic impacts of climate change at different levels of global warming. It also provides a unique opportunity for cross-sectoral integration.

This includes the provision of input data through a central database (these datasets will be collated in close collaboration with all participants), the management of an output data archive, and assurance of consistency across sectors and scales with respect to data, format and modelling protocol. Having completed the first, fast-track phase (grant reference number: 01LS1201A) the second phase of ISI-MIP (ISI-MIP2) is envisaged to last approximately 4 years, and has started in May 2013. It will consist of two major steps, each lasting approximately 2 years (ISI-MIP2.1 and ISI-MIP2.2).
