Regional Climate Variability and Change: Enabling Climate Services


Session Description:

It is at the regional scale where climate knowledge can enable the most efficient services to society. This session will review the local-to-regional scale knowledge and information that climate science can provide through satellite data, high resolution analysis and dynamical model predictions. The session also encourages discussion on the use of that information for improved decision support in climate-impacted sectors such as public health, water resources, food security and more generally its use to improve the understanding of socio-economic impacts of climate variability and change.
