Fondazione CMCC

About the Organisation

The Fondazione Centro Euro-Mediterraneo sui Cambiamenti Climatici (Fondazione CMCC) is a non-profit research institution. CMCC’s mission is to investigate and model our climate system and its interactions with society to provide reliable, rigorous, and timely scientific results, which will in turn stimulate sustainable growth, protect the environment, and develop science driven adaptation and mitigation policies in a changing climate. CMCC collaborates with experienced scientists, economists, and technicians, which work together in order to provide full analyses of climate impacts on various  systems such as agriculture, ecosystems, coasts, water resources, health, and economics. CMCC benefits from the extensive applied research experience of its members and institutional partners.

CMCC also supports policymakers in setting and assessing costs, mitigation, and adaptation policies. Since 2006, CMCC has been the IPCC National Focal Point for Italy, supporting the Italian Ministry of Environment in the UNFCCC negotiations on adaptation and land mitigation related issues.

Role in CoCO2

CMCC will contribute to WP6 Integration, testing, application and initial validation of prototype systems, providing the landscape of the policy needs and challenges within the Global Stocktake process under the UNFCCC.  In WP7 Observations CMCC will develop  new methods and techniques, and finally contribute to the data delivery in WP2 Prior and ancillary information.
