The recent completion of MEDSCOPE project within the framework of ERA4CS initiative (https://www.medscope-project.eu) provides improved knowledge of climate predictability at the seasonal time scale over the Mediterranean region, a collection of tools for analyzing and synthesizing seasonal forecast information, and the development and evaluation of downstream services in three priority sectors (renewable energy, water management and agriculture/forestry). A survey carried out within the Mediterranean Climate Outlook Forum (MedCOF) community stressed the need for a training workshop on climate predictability and tools for synthesizing and analyzing seasonal climate forecast information.

Following recommendations collected in the “Guidance for Mediterranean Climate Outlook Forum sub-region to enable operational production of objective seasonal forecasts” and thorough discussion within the MedCOF community attwo PreCOF events (29th Nov and 16th Dec 2021), we propose a training workshop, aiming at the production of objective seasonal forecasts for the MedCOF sub-region.
