Scoping Meeting for a Mediterranean Climate Outlook Forum.

12-14 June 2013, Madrid.

The scoping meeting focused on collaboration/cooperation across the Mediterranean basin for operational provision of climate information at seasonal scales (and tentatively beyond).

It was mainly organized to allow in depth discussions on the scientific issues relevant for a potential Regional Climate Outlook Forum (RCOF) covering partially or totally the Mediterranean basin. RCOFs are a key component of the climate-related activities performed by WMO and a pillar of the Global Framework for Climate Services.

The main objective of the meeting was to lay the foundations for an interregional (RAI and RAVI) RCOF. This potential RCOF will also strengthen the capacity of its participants. The meeting, organized by AEMET in collaboration with WMO, aimed to define the scope of the future RCOF, stakeholders involved and their responsibilities, task and procedures.

The meeting took place at AEMET headquarters in Madrid.
