The Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology (IITM), under the auspices of the Ministry of Earth Sciences of the  Government of India, will host the 6th International Conference on Climate Services (ICCS 6) in Pune, India from February 11-13, 2020. The days before and after the conference days are reserved for side events.

ICCS is the world’s premiere climate services event, organized jointly by the Global Framework for Climate Services, an international effort coordinated by the World Meteorological Organization, and the Climate Services Partnership. Financial support is provided under the UK Department for International Development Asia Regional Resilience to a Changing Climate (ARRCC) Programme.

ICCS 6 will develop connections between and among the range of actors that make up the climate services community, including those based at national and regional meteorological services, national and local governments, intergovernmental and non-governmental organizations, research institutes, and the private sector. It provides a unique opportunity to share skills, experience, and expertise with an active climate services network.

The theme of the conference is advancing the knowledge and practice of climate services for climate resilience. Conference presentations will engage issues related to the production and use of climate services in a range of social and economic sectors. The overarching goals of the conference are:

  • taking stock of current practice;
  • identifying remaining gaps and opportunities for enhanced regional collaboration in order to ensure improved climate services uptake;
  • articulating priorities and seeking relevant institutional arrangements to sustain and scale up the ongoing national and regional efforts related to production and delivery of climate services.

More information on registration, visas, program, and the conference organizing committee is forthcoming.
