Introductory Workshop on Climate services for the National Adaptation Plans

Climate Change Adaptation is essential for building the resilience to the intensifying extreme weather events and to the general shifts of the climate worldwide. Throughout the world, governments build National Adaptation Plans, which are typically integrated into the multiannual national work plan, resources allocation and the ways national infrastructures are built and managed. National Meteorological and Hydrological Services are required to address this urgent challenge and provide climate services that are appropriate to the evolving needs. Without proper climate products it is difficult to evaluate the risks and to build proper adaptation plans. In this introductory workshop we will discuss the essential ingredients of the required climate analysis supporting the adaptation plans of three sectors – Agriculture, Water & Energy. The participants will be exposed to the challenges and requirements of these sectors and to possible climatological practices for addressing these needs.

This short workshop is a joint venture of the Israeli Meteorological Service (IMS) with Israel’s Agency for International Development Cooperation (MASHAV) and is aimed for post-graduate climatologists in NMHSs in developing countries.
