JPI Climate is a European initiative coordinated manner” concerning the coordination of climate research funding. ‘Climate knowl- edge’ in a rather broad sense, includes all kinds of scientific knowledge on Frank Mc Govern causes, consequences, cost, risks and benefits of climate change, as well as Environmental Protection Agency possible responses. JPI Climate intends to contribute to highly coordinated knowledge development by improving the scientific expertise on climate change risks and adaptation options, and also by connecting that knowledge with decision-making on safety and major investments in climate-vulnerable sectors in Europe. The main objective of JPI Climate is to provide integrated knowledge and informa­ ion on climate change to support decision making and advance soci- t etal goals on climate change. In doing so it aims to respond to the needs of policy, decision makers and European society in general. To do this, JPI Climate provides a platform to facilitate the coordination, collaboration and exploitation of climate change research across Europe. It aims to enhance synergies and reduce fragmentation of efforts and duplication. It will thereby help underpin effective efforts to address the challenges of climate change.Mace Head Atmospheric Research Station, JPI Climate is based on shared research objectives and alignment of nationalCarna, County Galway, Ireland research priorities in a joint Strategic Research Agenda (SRA).
