- Podcast on CORDEX Africa

The Climate System Analysis Group (CSAG) at the University of Cape Town a while ago started a podcast called Climate Frontiers. The third episode, guided by Dr Chris Lennard (former CORDEX SAT-member) and published in July 2021, focused on CORDEX Africa and how it has developed during the last decade. Many African CORDEX community members, a former CORDEX co-chair, the IPOC director, and others contribute to the podcast with some of their views on building the capacity of African scientists working with climate related issues as well as the benefits for society.

The national German TV channel “ARD” contacted GERICS after hearing about the release of the “Klimaausblicke” (Climate outlooks). In the news item the reporter says that the data describing climate change in Germany has remained rather coarse in the past. This has now been changed by the publication of the analysis of climate data for each of the German counties by the Helmholtz-Zentrum Hereon / GERICS. Altogether, 401 “Klimaausblicke” (Climate outlooks) can be downloaded for free to enable counties to prepare for the future. Daniela Jacob says German counties now have access to detailed knowledge about possible future climate change, which needs to be considered for future planning. No-one in Germany may say in the future: I didn’t know this. The “Klimaausblicke” are …
