WISER support to ICPAC (W2-SIP)
The purpose of this project was to improve the development, uptake and use of sub-seasonal, seasonal and long-term timescale products and services for regional applications.
The impact of the W2-SIP project was to enhance the resilience and prosperity of ICPAC member states by fostering climate services and knowledge. It aimed to increase the use of co-produced reliable weather and climate services to inform regional and national policy and decision-making. This project built on the successes of the SCIPEA and ENACTS projects supported in WISER phase 1.
ICPAC’s capacity to be a knowledge and learning hub on user centred co-production and knowledge brokering in climate services was strengthened. ICPAC staff gained increased skills in co-production approaches including facilitation skills for co-producing climate services with users. In addition, WISER made substantial investments in ICPAC’s computing and IT facilities to allow it to better produce forecasts to meet their user’s needs, and as a regional resource that can be accessed by ICPAC member states.
