ORGANIZER(S): World Meteorological Organization (WMO)
Type: Meeting or Conference Date: 20 - 22 Oct 2017 Location: Indonesia (Denpansar) Venue: Patra Bali Hotel
The Science Summit, organized by the Commission for Atmospheric Sciences, will take place in Bali, Indonesia from 20 to 22 October 2017. The Summit will provide an opportunity to shape the WMO research agenda, building on the closer collaboration between weather, climate, water and environment research. An additional focus of the Summit is to close the gap between research and the derived societal benefits.
The world we are living in is changing. Fundamental changes in the environment, an ever-growing global population, and rapid changes in technologies create new challenges and opportunities.
High-impact weather, climate, water and environment events undermine the resilience of people and the infrastructures they are relying on. A coordinated research effort and new investments are required to build science for services through seamless prediction systems, benefiting from future infrastructures while nurturing scientific talents.
A clear benefit to countries and all citizens emerges through the WMO research activities on facilitating the exchange of scientific and technical knowledge, to make the latest research advances more accessible and usable, especially for developing countries.
During each session, keynote talks and round-table discussions will challenge our thinking. While in break out sessions the participants will derive concrete outcomes, identify roadblocks, and define priorities. Poster sessions will enable scientific exchange among the participants.
