Yvo de Boer: "regional relevance and greater frequency,keys for successful climate services"
At the JRC's Annual Lecture entitled: "climate services: fit for purpose?", Yvo de Boer explained the ingredients for their success. Such services have to be put in the context of people's regional relevance - even if this means extrapolating data at regional level - and the dissemination frequency of information has to be much higher. Only then will they be able to provide their crucial role of supporting the policy-making process, bringing business on board and contributing to the creation of a public awareness and understanding.
