2 Environmental and climate related challenges require an Earth System approach that no single institution or nation can fulfill alone. Observation systems have not been developed with the same systematic approach as Earth System modeling. Observational strategies need to be designed around multi-disciplinary considerations. Challenges with organizing a decentralized infra-structure such that the mutual benefits are obvious. Necessity to formulate clear scientific goals that are only reachable if everyone contributes (over time).

3 Kim Holmén. page 3 Host contribution for the first three years of the SIOS implementation phase: Norway suggests that a setup team of up to five persons is gradually put in place from 1 October The setup team will be responsible for setting up the SIOS organization and its core services. Norway will invite all partner countries to join in the interim phase while offering to cover the costs of up to four out of five persons in the setup team, including offices and meeting facilities etc. for the team. We also aim at contributing with minimum one third of additional implementation cost for the core services that will be provided by the SIOS KC. We call for partner countries to identify their expertise and ambitions for contributing to the implementation plans, since such contributions will be of critical importance for further progress.

The core observational program of SIOS will be stable over time yet dynamic. It will be modified and expanded as called for, based on the insights attained through the Knowledge Center.
