DARECLIMED: Data Repositories and Computational Infrastructure for Environmental and Climate Studies in the Eastern Mediterranean

The purpose of DARECLIMED is to create the appropriate environment for the formation of a regional data infrastructure devoted to paleo-, current- and future climate, energy and water related data. Major goals and objectives are:

I. To improve  the availability of data relevant to climate change assessments for the Eastern Mediterranean region and the Middle East, aiming for standards comparable to those of Western Europe, thereby achieving a more balanced territorial development

II. To identify and engage stakeholders in the region that have access to, own or have collected relevant data

III. To define conditions under which data can be shared while protecting the rights and interests of all stakeholders

IV. To develop broadly accepted quality control standards and procedures for all data types

V. To agree on minimal information, harmonization procedures and common representations of the data, so as to make them interoperable

VI. To develop a framework and capacity for comparison and integration of climate projections for the region derived from multiple datasets and models

VII. To support the build-up and integration of a regional infrastructure for climate research, with an emphasis on computing resources, through networking and prospective activities that will also facilitate the incubation of future collaborative climate research

VIII. To assess the current use of computer resources by the regional climate community

IX. To promote sharing of RCM models and RCM simulation results (including the creation of adequate repositories), in order to advance the optimal use of computational resources and enable the emergence of a broadly accepted scientific consensus on regional climate modeling and resulting climate projections.
