2nd International Conference on Evaluating Climate Change and Development “Tackling a Key 21st Century Evaluation Challenge”
Start Date: November 4, 2014
End Date: November 6, 2014
Location: United States
About: Scheduled for November 4-6, 2014 in Washington D.C., this 2nd International Conference will tackle the difficulties linked to the evaluation of climate change and development, described by many as a major 21st century evaluation challenge. Participants for the conference are expected to be drawn equally from the global South andNorth to take stock of existing tools and methods but also reflect on and share experiences on emerging approaches in order to improve the practice of climate change evaluation. Efforts will also be made towards identify new and innovative ways to create an enabling environment for the demand and use of climate change and development evaluation in order to improve policy making.
Third International Conference on ENSO: “Bridging the gaps between global ENSO science and regional processes, extremes and impacts”
Start Date: November 12, 2014
End Date: November 14, 2014
Organization: CIIFEN (Centro Internacional para la Investigación del Fenomeno de El Niño)
About: The III International Conference on ENSO, dedicated to “Bridging the gaps between Global ENSO Science and regional processes, extremes and impacts” will be held in Guayaquil, Ecuador from 12-14 November 2014. The conference is a follow-on to the Second International “Workshop on ENSO, Decadal Variability and Climate Change in South America: Trends, teleconnections and potential impacts” held in October 2010 and the First International ENSO Conference: “The El Niño phenomenon and its global impact” in May 2005, both held in Guayaquil, Ecuador. The conference aims to review progress on the science of ENSO and related regional processes in order to improve the prediction of regional impacts; and to contribute to development of decision support frameworks that allow timely and appropriate planning and response at national and local levels. ABSTRACT SUBMISSIONS are due by May 30, 2014, and can me submitted to http://www.ciifen.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=category&layout=blog&id=122&Itemid=178&lang=en
