EPICC - East Africa Peru India Climate Capacities

Co-production of user-oriented climate services to better adapt to climate change

Description:

The overarching goal of this project is to strengthen resilience against disruptive weather phenomena and climate change at national, regional and local level in three partner countries: India, Peru and Tanzania. This project is an opportunity for the partner countries to reduce the gap between climate research and its application in policy, business and societal decisions, particularly regarding agriculture, hydrology and water resources, and migration issues. Consequently, the project aims to identify on a collaborative basis how sound climate models and related tools can be tailored to national needs. For instance, how can climate scenarios and seasonal prediction models be calibrated and put in to use for agricultural management? Or how can migration-climate hotspot maps support strategies to reduce vulnerability to climate stressors?

The project encompasses five modules to be developed according to preferences and top priorities of partner countries. In this sense, EPICC is adaptive to needs and capacities of local partners.

This project is part of the International Climate Initiative (IKI). The Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) supports this initiative on the basis of a decision adopted by the German Bundestag. The Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) is leading the execution of the project together with its project partners The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI), based in New Delhi, and the Deutscher Wetterdienst (DWD; German Meteorological Service), based in Hamburg. The project runs within the period of 1st January 2018 till 28th of February 2021 and is also known under the name "Climate Capacity Building: Risk Anticipation and Minimization".
