The “Meeting on the Implementation Coordination of the GFCS” took place from Sept 29. – Oct. 1, 2014 at the World Meteorological Organization in Geneva.
Roger Pulwarty represented current and potential contributions of CPO to GFCS implementation at this meeting, and also provided a presentation about ongoing and planned initiatives relevant to the GFCS on behalf of the U.S. government.
The outcome of this meeting will result in practical mechanisms for coordination and commencement of these activities in support of the implementation of the GFCS. Other participants from NOAA include NWS and NESDIS/NCDC.
Wayne Higgins, CPO director, serves as the U.S. representative to the GFCS governance structure called the Intergovernmental Board on Climate Services.
