They are instrumental for assessments and policy implementations, such as the IPCC and the 2015 Paris Agreement. The need for systematic climate observations is increasing with the growing urgency for adaptation and mitigation measures that can require high resolution information. It is therefore crucial to make further progress towards achieving a fully implemented and sustainable global observing system for climate applications.

The second GCOS Climate Observation Conference (17-19 October 2022, Darmstadt, Germany) will focus on activities and solutions that help to achieve a fully implemented, sustainable, and fit for purpose global observing system for climate.

The Conference will also provide the occasion to celebrate GCOS 30th Anniversary and take stock of the progress achieved by the global observing community in the last three decades.

The 2nd Climate Observation Conference will be built around topics such as:

  • How do global climate observations support climate policies?
  • How well do current climate observations support the understanding of climate change and variability?
  • Networks and systems – what improvements are needed to better meet user needs?
  • Data processing, archiving and stewardship.
