Switzerland's National Centre for Climate Services (NCCS) launched its new web portal on 13 November 2018, delivering scientifically sound information in an easily digestible format to its network of climate service producers and users. The NCCS web portal serves as a gateway to climate services and information on climate change adaptation.
The newly released study Climate Scenarios CH2018 is among the wealth of climate information that can be accessed on the website. Climate researchers from MeteoSwiss and ETH Zurich found that Switzerland's future climate will be characterized by dry summers, heavy rain, more hot days, and snow-scarce winters. These climate scenarios will form the basis for the Swiss federal government's climate change adaptation strategy.
