The NCCS develops climate services within several focal topics. Examples include:
CH2018 prepares climate change scenarios for Switzerland based on the latest climate model simulations, taking account of user needs.
Hydro-CH2018 investigates the impact of climate change on water resources and natural hazards.
Forecasts on the future development and spread of pests among crops in Switzerland as the foundation for planning adaptation measures.
Climate change affects the forest functions, forest health, the distribution of tree species and the forest as carbon sink.
Extreme climatic events and natural hazard processes: how representative scenarios for extreme climatic events can improve civil protection measures.
Climate Change and Human Health – what the effects of heat waves on health are and how preventive measures can be implemented.
Animal health: how the climate affects the spread of animal diseases and epidemics.
