WCRP VAMOS/CORDEX Second Workshop on Latin America and Caribbean – CORDEX LAC II

Date: March 18, 2014

The first Workshop identified common interests among participants, such as the need for both observed and projected climate data, and facilitated the initial development of a regional network across the VIA and climate modeling communities from Latin America and the Caribbean. The second workshop will provide the opportunity for new participants to join the network and will serve as a forum for addressing the following topics:

  • Regional climate downscaling products for model evaluation, assessment of regional climate change projections and associated uncertainties.
  • Vulnerability, impacts and adaptation analysis on key sectors (hydrology, agriculture, water resources, and health, among others)
  • Implications for sustainable development and policy-making – building capacity contributing to a global framework for climate services.

The workshop is open to both new participants and those who attended the first Workshop. The primary workshop focus will be on training the workshop participants on assessing and interpreting model results and climate data critically. Participants will develop a mini-policy document relevant to decision-makers and based on these climate data.
