In November 2020 the Nordic Council of Ministers’ Working Group on Climate and Air (NKL) arranged a digital workshop focusing on downscaling of climate projections, different user needs and the implications for climate adaptation. The aim of the workshop was to explore the user needs and enhance the science-policy interface with regard to climate modelling and climate adaptation in the Nordic countries. In total, the workshop gathered 32 participants from all Nordic countries, representing national authorities, research institutes and other organisations from both the scientific and policy level. The participants concluded that Nordic co-operation on downscaling of climate models is essential. Enhanced communication between producers of climate models and end users is needed, and different types of co-creation processes should be developed.
