The design of adaptation solutions requires climate change scenarios to assess vulnerabilities. However, it requires a considerable resources to downscale climate data which add financial and technical burdens for locally-led adaptation.
To bridge this gap, we introduce the S8DS dynamical climate change data downscaling service. This allows practitioners to assess global climate scenarios at the local scale without highly specialized technical training and skills.
Moreover, it is made freely available for use by individuals or organizations working on adaptation in developing countries in Asia and the Pacific which includes
officials involved in National Adaptation Planning (NAP) processes, and other climate practitioners, researchers, etc.
However, commercial use of this service is strictly prohibited.
