An expert panel consisting of the Copernicus Climate Change Service, the Copernicus Marine Service and the Principal Advisor to the Greek Prime Minister will set out the increasing risks, and how free and open earth observation data from the EU’s Copernicus programme can assist action in this context.
The event will set out the context with Greece as a real-life example, and showcase an example data-driven application, available in the Copernicus Climate and Atmosphere datastore, built in partnership with the Union for Mediterranean. The application demonstrates the impact of climate change on sea level rise around cultural heritage sites in the UfM region.
The UfM has partnered with ECMWF, entrusted entity for implementing the European Union’s Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S) and Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring Service (CAMS). The partnership aims to support Mediterranean countries and regional stakeholders to address the challenges posed by climate change in the region.
