Webinar #1 with Sister Projects

The first webinar coordinated by the three sister projects FOCUS-Africa, DOWN2EARTH, and CONFER was held on 13 October, with the title “Understanding Seasonal Forecasts: Q&A with Climate Scientists”. This was the first in a series of webinars that the three projects will arrange. This article will summarise the webinar and explain some of the main points that were discussed.

Norwegian Climate Outlook Forum

Seasonal forecasts are becoming increasingly relevant as the weather is getting more extreme. Early indications of how the weather will be long into the future increases the ability to prepare for different scenarios. One way to distribute the forecasts to the people who need them is through Regional Climate Outlook Forums, and recently the first Norwegian one took place, arranged by Climate Futures.
