WISER support to ICPAC (W2-SIP)
The purpose of this project is 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 will be to enhance the resilience and prosperity of ICPAC member states by fostering climate services and knowledge. It aims to increase the use of co-produced reliable weather and climate services to inform regional and national policy and decision-making. This project builds 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 will be strengthened. ICPAC staff will gain increased skills in co-production approaches including facilitation skills for co-producing climate services with users. In addition, WISER will be making 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.
