Inter-Sectoral Impact Encyclopedia
ISIpedia develops the ISIpedia online encyclopedia and coordinates the research within ISIMIP: The Inter-Sectoral Impact Model Intercomparison Project. Comprehensive information about the impacts of climate change is essential for decision makers when considering response options to projected climate-change.
ISIpedia provides access to the assessments and syntheses of national-level climate-impact information:historical observations, present-day conditions, projections on near-term to far-term future developments.
Model limitationsare transparently documented and comparisons between historical simulations and observations are provided for model evaluation
ISIpedia provides regionally-resolved visualisations of projections of climate-impacts for important sector-specific and cross-sectoral indicators,such as land area affected by droughts or population affected by crop failure.
Katja Frieler is Head of the Research Department 3 "Transformation Pathways" where she leads the area "Pathway-specific climate risks". Katja Frieler is IPCC lead author for Chapter 16 on "Key Risks Across Sectors and Regions" in the 6th Assessment Report of Working Group 2. She leads the Inter-Sectoral Impact Model Intercomparison Project (ISIMIP) and the open climate impact encyclopedia ISIpedia. Katja Frieler works on changes in the occurrence of extreme events in terms of global mean temperature change. She holds a Diploma in Mathematics and a PhD in "Physics of the Atmosphere" of the University of Potsdam.
ISIpedia is a consortium of researchers from twelve institutions in seven countries Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) is in charge of the project coordination. Climate Analytics is leading the Stakeholder Engagement Team. The International Institute for Advanced System Analysis (IIASA) leads the Assessment & Editorial work. The ISIpedia sector coordinators are part of the ISIMIP work package: Senckenberg Institute for Climate and Biodiversity, Global Climate Forum, Goethe University Frankfurt, Autonomous University of Barcelona, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Laboratoire des Sciences du Climat et de l’Environment, Umea University, University Pablo de Olavide, Utrecht University
