Workshop International Climate Services: Understanding and Responding to the Needs of Decision Makers

The convergence of evolving scientific and institutional capabilities on the national and international landscapes provided a natural opportunity (and imperative) for NOAA’s Climate Program Office to convene a dialogue with a sub-set number of our partners and stakeholders to thoughtfully explore and consider some of the challenges and opportunities associated with moving into the next phase of international climate services development. Given the scope of the challenge, this workshop was designed to deal specifically with those issues most relevant to understanding and responding to the needs of decision makers, and the potential implications for NOAA’s future directions and program investments. It was not intended to cover all dimensions of the development and use of climate information services. This workshop report is the summary of this dialogue and offers some potential directions for NOAA’s international climate applications and services development activities.

Transdisciplinarity Enabled on the role of the International Research Institute for Climate and Society (IRI) in Shaping Climate Services


A Special Issue of the Journal, Earth Perspectives: Transdisciplinarity Enabled on the role of the International Research Institute for Climate and Society (IRI) in Shaping Climate Services was published on June 14th, 2014. 

The articles are open source and available online at: http://www.earth-perspectives.com/series/SLCS


NOAA catalyzed the establishment of the IRI in the mid-1990s, and supported its work for over15 years; NOAA/CPO/CSI continues rely upon the technical expertise and experiences of the IRI, as the institution joins the University of Arizona as one of the Co-leads of the recently established IRAP endeavor. The first essay in this special issue describes the US interest in investing in this type of work, and outlines the IRAP as a next phase in our activities.  For additional information, please contact Lisa Farrow Vaughan at Lisa.Vaughan@noaa.gov.

Integrating Climate Information and Decision Processes for Regional Climate Resilience in the Caribbean

The International Research and Applications Project (IRAP), Integrating Climate Information and Decision Processes for Regional Climate Resilience, advances research on adaptation and resilience to climate variability and change while also advancing the application of climate services. The project supports risk management through research-based improvements in design, development, and provision of climate information, particularly as they contribute to national and regional development goals.

NOAA is pleased to present the first IRAP report, entitled "Integrating Climate Information and Decision Processes for Regional Climate Resilience in the Caribbean".  The report synthesizes a workshop held in Kingston, Jamaica, May 29-30, 2014, sponsored by NOAA and USAID, in collaboration with the Caribbean Institute for Meteorology and Hydrology.

ABOUT OUR ORGANIZATION

Americans’ health, security and economic wellbeing are tied to climate and weather. Every day, we see communities grappling with environmental challenges due to unusual or extreme events related to climate and weather. In 2011, the United States experienced a record high number (14) of climate- and weather-related disasters where overall costs reached or exceeded $1 billion. Combined, these events claimed 670 lives, caused more than 6,000 injuries, and cost $55 billion in damages. Businesses, policy leaders, resource managers and citizens are increasingly asking for information to help them address such challenges.
