The EMS&ECAM conference theme: Creating climate services through partenerships
Climate has and will continue to have a strong impact on the environment, on the economy and on health and safety. Societies need to adapt to present weather and climate on the one hand, but also develop new strategies for expected future conditions. It is vital that more services be created and existing ones improved, based on better monitoring and understanding, and on improved predictions of climate in the short, medium and long term.
In line with the Global Framework of Climate Services (GFCS) these initiatives are increasingly developed through partnerships and dialogue, between scientists, developers, providers and end-users, the primary aim being to support society to cope with high impact climate extremes.
