Climar Workshop Reflection

While most of our team had heard about climate change and its impacts on the various sectors of the economy, what surprised us is the crucial role climate and weather information plays, as well as the expansiveness of sectors impacted.

We were also surprised by the level of diversity in terms of skills and experience in our team, ranging from a coding expert, educator, GIS expert and business expert, to a climatologist as well as practitioner in climate change adaptation.

Lastly, we were amazed by the huge number of companies and people working to bring climate services closer to the people who most need it. There exists a number of opportunities for us to work with other organizations to improve access to climate information.
