Town Hall Meeting: Global Climate Forecasting Services—From forecasts to User Decisions—An international Perspective

Thursday, 10 January 2013: 7:00 AM-8:15 AM
Room 11AB (Austin Convention Center)
Host: Town Hall Meetings

The US Agency for International Development (USAID) Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance (OFDA) is partnered with US federal agencies such as the NOAA National Weather Service Climate Prediction Center and the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) to assist developing countries to develop capacity to produce climate forecasts that will benefit the various country economic sectors. Projects and workshops have resulted in successful adoption of climate forecasts to improve decision making in countries such as Kenya and in western Africa. A panel consisting of meteorologists from Africa (Senegal and Kenya) as well as a Climate forecaster with the Climate prediction center will discuss the gains and challenges of linking climate forecast products to user decisions. For additional information, please contact Sezin Tokar (e-mail: stokar@USAID.GOV).
