Title: Climate service developments globally, regionally and nationally

Abstract:  There are many climate service activities underway,
globally, regionally, and nationally in the UK and elsewhere.  At the
global scale the main activity is the Global Framework for Climate
Services (GFCS) which arose from the World Climate Conference 3 in
2009, as well as newer activities such as the Climate Service
Partnership and the associated annual International Conference on
Climate Services.  In addition to describing such global activities,
this talk will present some regional activities in Europe (such as the
EUPORIAS project), activities at the UK Met Office, as well as ongoing
collaboration with NCAR.

Bio:  Dr Chris Hewitt is Head of Climate Service Development at the
Met Office in the UK.  He is responsible for developing strategic
relationships to improve, and maximise the use of, climate service
capabilities.  He is the coordinator of EUPORIAS, a 4-year project
funded by the European Commission to develop climate service
prototypes.  He is part of the core writing team for the GFCS
Implementation Plan and part of the core team (along with colleagues
from NCAR) of the International Climate Services Partnership.
