1. International Climate Services: Understanding and Responding to the Needs of Decision Makers
Workshop held September 27-29, 2010 in Washington, DC

    The purpose of the workshop was to generate an enhanced understanding of, and recommendations related to the evolving challenges and opportunities for international climate services efforts, particularly with regards to understanding and responding to user needs. Specifically, the workshop addressed the following objectives:

  1. Provide constructive and timely expert input to help shape specific NOAA programmatic/activity investment opportunities in the area of international climate decision support research and services, with an emphasis on understanding and responding to the needs of decision makers; and
  2. Help inform international climate strategic planning discussions that address the broader range of international climate research and services from a decision support and user needs perspective.
  3. The two-day workshop featured a series of thematic panels in which invited discussants were asked to give brief, informal presentations, framed by a series of questions that identified key issues for consideration and informed the group discussions that followed each panel. On the third day of the workshop, a small sub-set of the workshop participants (referred to as the Summary Panel) met to reflect upon and distill some of the main ideas and implications of the workshop discussions.
