Intelligence, Research and Consulting for sustainable and climate-proof decision making processes
ACTUALLY THERE IS INCREASING DEMAND FOR TRANSLATING THE EXISTING WEALTH OF CLIMATE DATA AND INFORMATION INTO CUSTOMISED TOOLS, PRODUCTS AND SERVICES (‘CLIMATE SERVICES’).
CLIMATE SERVICES REPRESENT THE INTELLIGENCE BEHIND THE TRANSITION TO A CLIMATE-RESILIENT AND LOW-CARBON SOCIETY.
With the mission of Bridging the gap between climate forecasters and sector expertise, GECOSISTEMA PROVIDES CLIMATE intelligence, DATA AND TOOLS FOR SUPPORTING DECISION-MAKERS IN TAKING WELL INFORMED DECISIONS IN ORDER TO BOOST RESILIENCE AND ADAPTATION CAPACITY BY ADDRESSING EXISTING OR EMERGING RISKS IN MULTIPLE SECTORS.
GECOsistema develops specific services and provides access to several climate indicators (e.g. temperature increase, sea level rise, precipitation changes, river water balance) and climate indices (e.g. based on records of temperature, precipitation, drought event, soil moisture) for climate drivers and expected climate impacts on multiple sectors.
GECOsistema innovative solutions are developed in tight connection with universities (UNIBO) and research centers (CMCC, SMHI).
Since 2018 GECOsistema joined the EIT Climate-Kic consortium, an European knowledge and innovation community, working to accelerate the transition to a zero-carbon economy.
GECOsistema has been and is currently involved in several research programme focused on climate intelligence and products development (CLARA_H2020).
Moreover in order to better meet and satisfy the specific users need the services are co-designed and co-developed engaging the final users following and AGILE workflow.
AGRICULTURE AND IRRIGATION ARE A PARTICULARLY SENSITIVE SECTOR TO THE POTENTIAL IMPACTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE. GECOsistema develops tailored Climate-Service and Tools able to ASSIST IRRIGATION MANAGER and farmers in:
- promoting Climate Smart and Digital Agriculture
- protecting harvesting from climate risks (drought)
- assessing the suitability of the existing irrigation network under a climate change scenario
- quantifying the deficit or surplus of irrigation water
- evaluating investments in new infrastructures, improvements and mitigation and/or adaptation technologies and best practices assessing and identifying more sustainable crop practices
The amount of Renewable energy production from hydropower and photovoltaic plant is strictly dependent by hydro-meteorological conditions. The possibility to predict the energy production in climate long-term or seasonal short-term scenario represents a key aspect for planning resources, optimizing the production and economical revenues. GECOsistema develops specific Climate-Service with the aim of supporting decision making combing seasonal forecasts knowledge with artificial intelligence (Machine/Deep learning) algorithms to forecast of hydroelectricity production.
