CLIPS Focal Points
The concept of the Regional Network of CLIPS Focal Points is to develop capacity in NMHSs through the selection and training of individual experts and to develop interaction on a Regional basis. It is proposed that the latter objective will be achieved by networking Focal Points into sub-Regional groupings with Rapporteurs appointed by the Regional Associations acting as coordinators. Confirmation of this approach is being sought in each Regional Association meeting as they occur; Regional Associations I, II, III, V and VI have promulgated the approach while Regional Association IV has indicated a preference for regional, rather than national, Focal Points.
Responsibilities of individual Focal Points will vary according to national or regional requirements and may include:
Regional co-ordination will build on the above list of activities.
In all cases, the CLIPS Focal Points will provide summary reports on their national and regional climate prediction, applications and coordination activities to the WMO CLIPS Project office on a regular basis, bi-annually, in January and July of each year.
