Climate Scenarios CH2018: the warming continues
Switzerland will become drier, hotter and less snowy, and will struggle with heavier rainfall in the future – these are the conclusions reached by climate researchers from MeteoSwiss and ETH Zurich. On November 13th, they presented the Climate Scenarios CH2018 produced on behalf of the Federal Council. They form the basis for the climate change adaptation strategy of the Swiss federal government.
1. Dry summers
2. More hot days
3. Heavy precipitation
4. Snow-scarce winters
National Centre for Climate Scenarios (NCCS)
The NCCS is organised in the form of a virtual centre, and brings together administrative federal bodies. It coordinates the collaborative development and provision of climate services and promotes dialogue among all actors involved.
