Symposium on
Climate Risk Management

Guayaquil, Ecuador, 10-12 October 2011

 

Resolution 6 of CCl-XV (Antalya, Turkey, 19-24 February 2010) on Climate Information for Adaptation and Climate Risk Management (CRM) recognized the needs of decision-makers for limate information and products for use in risk management and longer-term adaptation strategies of key socio-economic sectors.  CCl recognized a need to develop the concept of Climate Risk Management, to identify good practices and to develop a strategy to assist WMO Members to effectively support CRM. 

In that context, a Symposium on Climate Risk Management was organized by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) in Guayaquil, Ecuador, from 10 to 12 October 2011, in collaboration with “Centro Internacional para la Investigación del Fenómeno de el Niño” (CIIFEN) http://www.ciifen-int.org/

On the basis of the proceedings of this Symposium, participants, along with members of the CCl Task Team on CRM, developed a report that has been published as a chapter: Improving Climate Risk Management at Local Level – Techniques, Case Studies, Good Practices and Guidance for World Meteorological Organization Members (Chapter 21) in a book by InTech: Risk Management – Current Issues and challenges (Edited by Nerija Banaitiene, ISBN 978-953-51-0747-7, Hard cover, 584 pages, 12 September 2012).
