WHO/WMO Invitation to submit Case Studies on Climate Services for Health - In 2012, WHO and WMO jointly published the Atlas on Climate and Health, drawing attention to the key linkages and how climate information can be used to understand and manage climate sensitive health risks. This follow-up publication takes a next step to outline with greater detail the wide range of health applications that can benefit from using climate and weather information; what steps and processes can be used to co-develop and use climate and weather information in the health sector; and how such partnerships and services can really make a difference to the health community.  

Please accept this invitation to contribute short case studies of your experiences by Oct 31st that can help define and inform this emerging transdisciplinary field. Further guidance is available here

WMO at UN Climate Summit 2014 – Catalyzing Action, UN Headquarters, New York, 23 September 2014

How will climate change impact our weather in the year 2050? Watch “weather reports from the future”
If humanity’s greenhouse gas emissions continue to increase, the average temperature of the Earth’s lower atmosphere could rise more than 4°C (7.2°F) by the end of the 21st century. But what does a global average temperature rise really mean? How would we experience it on a daily basis? To find out what could lie in store, the WMO invited television weather presenters from around the world to imagine a “weather report from the year 2050.” What they created are only possible scenarios, of course, and not true forecasts. Nevertheless, they are based on the most up-to-date climate science, and they paint a compelling picture of what life could be like on a warmer planet.

The Climate Symposium 2014, Darmstadt, Germany, 13–17 October:
Organized by WCRP and EUMETSAT, the symposium will be an important step towards defining requirements, and the further development of an efficient and sustained international space-based Earth observing system. 

Conference on the Gender Dimensions of Weather and Climate Services, Universal access | Empowering Women, Geneva, 5–7 November:
The Conference will raise awareness and showcase good practices and concrete actions to empower women – as well as men – to  produce, acquire and use such services to make more informed decisions in the weather and climate-sensitive areas of food security, disaster risk reduction, water resources management and public health. Empowerment of women is important both to improve the effectiveness of weather and climate services and to build climate resilience. 


3rd International Conference on El Niño "Bridging the gaps between the Global ENSO Science and the regional processes, extremes and impacts", Guayaquil, Ecuador (GFCS), 12–14 November:
The Conference aims to review the progress on global El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) and regional processes in order to improve the prediction of ENSO and its related regional impacts. This CIIFEN initiative is very important and relevant to the implementation of the GFCS, and the contribution should be used primarily to support the participation of the NMHS's and users in the initial four priority aereas of the GFCS (agriculture and food security, disaster risk reduction, health and water).
