JPI Climate Workshop on Bridging the Gap between Climate Scientists, Providers and Users of Decadal Predictions

17-18 October 2013

This is a joined workshop of JPI Climate Module 1 (Moving towards Reliable Decadal Climate Predictions) and Module 2 (Researching Climate Service Development and Deployment). There is a strong scientific interest in decadal variability and predictability and actual decadal forecasts are being published. However, what determines whether these decadal forecasts will be used and how they will be used? This requires insight in users, their requirements and climate service providers, to be able to include them in a proper way in the product portfolio of Climate Services.

The scope of this workshop is to bridge the gap between climate scientists, providers and users of decadal predictions. An overview of recent developments in decadal forecasts and climate services will be given by key speakers (Prof. F.J. Roblas-Reyes and Dr. R. Street (to be confirmed) amongst others). These overviews will be accompanied by recent documents on both decadal predictions and on user needs and climate service providers.

After these introductions ample time will be reserved for discussion and identifying the gaps between those domains and associated research needs. The anticipated outcome of this workshop is that these discussions will fuel into the recommendation and framing of a joint call which will be suggested to the Governing Board and which can be included in both national and international programs.
