GCOS conference – save the date

The conference Global Climate Observation: the Road to the Future will be held from 2-4 March 2016 in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

The conference provides an opportunity to shape the new GCOS implementation plan. The main goals of the meeting are to

  • show how ECVs have helped shaping our understanding of climate
  • discuss observations for adaptation, mitigation and disaster risk reduction
  • identify critical gaps in the observing system
  • identify future areas for the use and development of new technology.

The main outcome should be a list of priority and additional actions that can be included in a new GCOS Implementation plan. Guidance on how GCOS should align its work plan with other related climate policy activities (RAMSAR, CBD, etc) and work programmes is also expected.

Registration opens on 15 October 2015.
