Understanding the needs of climate information users:

To help facilitate the dialogue on user needs, CSD co-sponsors the annual Climate Prediction Applications Science Workshop (CPASW), which brings together a diverse group of climate applications researchers, climate product producers, and users to share developments in research and applications related to the use of climate predictions in societal decision-making. The meeting goals:

  1. Identify new climate prediction applications research,
  2. “Build community” by promoting interactions between integrated climate-sensitive research and service communities,
  3. Assess impacts of climate forecasts on environmental-societal interactions,
  4. Provide feedback to producers of climate products on user requirements.

CPAWS 2019 information coming soon.
