Climate Office for Polar Regions and Sea Level Rise
Climate consulting: regionally specific, comprehensible, solid - the Helmholtz Climate Office at AWI
Global climate change varies greatly in its regional impact. Adaptation strategies in response to climate change have to take these differences into account in order to avoid misinvestments, among other things. Because of the constantly growing need for consulting services, the Helmholtz Association has set up a network of four regional climate offices, one of which is based at the Alfred Wegener Institute as a Climate Office for Polar Regions and Sea Level Rise.
The regional Helmholtz Climate Offices are not only networked to each other in connection with their specific field, but are also integrated into the Helmholtz Association's user-oriented climate research, which includes climate protection as well as climate impact and adaptation research. Furthermore, they cooperate with excellence initiatives, universities, state and federal authorities. Their comprehensible presented research results on specific regions and natural spaces are available to the actors and decision-makers involved in politics, industry and society as well as the entire public. The objective of the four regional Helmholtz Climate Offices is to bundle research results on climate change for certain regions and natural spaces as well as to prepare and communicate them in a comprehensible fashion. In this context each climate office represents the regional aspects of climate research based on the scientific expertise of the respective Helmholtz Centre.
