COP22: Connecting the dots between science and services for improved global climate resilience




October 29, 2016


Africa’s development is sensitive to climate and subject to increased vulnerability to weather extremes. The availability of high-quality climate information is a crucial foundation for effective climate risk management and adaptation. Many parts of the continent currently have very weak climate information and services. The science is also generally not available and where it is, is not used. An event hosted by Future Climate For Africa (FCFA) and Met Office (UK) will focus on investment in climate science and climate information services for Africa, whic can provide an important, cost-effective opportunity to support the implementation of Article 7 of the Paris Agreement, and is key to assisting developing country Parties in identifying effective adaptation practices, adaptation needs and priorities. FCFA will present its work to ‘connect the dots’ between science and practice. This event will look at how decision-makers can apply scientific information to develop climate resilient programmes that are relevant to their needs now and in future. DATE/TIME: Thursday 17th November, 16:45–18:15 LOCATION: Mediterranean room, Blue zone, COP22 venue ORGANISERS: SouthSouthNorth / CDKN /Future Climate for Africa / Met Office (UK)
