Expert Team on Sector-specific Climate Indices (ET-SCI)
Terms of Reference
ET-SCI jointly with the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) holds a series of workshops on Enhancing Climate Indices for Sector Specific Applications in different regions around the world.
The purpose of these workshops is to introduce the ET-SCI indices of climate extremes to meteorological and sector participants and to demonstrate the utility of these indices in helping sectors respond to climate variability and change. This purpose is being achieved via the introduction of the ClimPACT2 software package to the participants, and the practical application of the software and indices, with several key introductions to sectors and sector indices by invited experts.
These workshops are seen as the beginning of a process, where users are only introduced to the ET-SCI climate indices and software. The participants will continue applying the knowledge and skill they received at this workshop in their home countries, and will continue communicating with each other and the resource persons via the online channels created by the WMO, and importantly. All participants will contribute to post-workshop peer-reviewed scientific publications analysing climate and sector data and generated indices for the concerned region.
