1 Capacity Development needs for the GFCS Working Group meeting on Capacity Development 13 December 2011

2 Overview Development of the GFCS Capacity building requirements as determined by the HLTF National capacity building requirements as determined in the GFCS Consultation Meetings (Regional capacity building needs – Dec. 16th) Identified common needs

4 Consultation meetings 4 See reports on Climate Services Information System (April 2011) Observations and Monitoring o1st meeting for WMO and WMO cosponsored programs (August 2011) o2nd meeting addressing the user communities (in agriculture, Water, health, DRR) (December 2011) User Interface Platform oAgricultural, Food Security and Water sectors (September 2011, Rome) oDisaster Risk Reduction and Health Stakeholders (November 2011) Capacity Building Requirements of NMHSs for the GFCS (October 2011)

5 What are the key areas of current and projected applications of the GFCS within the sector (short, medium and long term)? Which geographic domains are of most relevance to the sectoral needs (global, regional, national)? What are the key products required from the GFCS and over what space-time scales? How can GFCS successfully contribute to decision making within the sector over the various space-time scales? What capacity development is required in the sector of interest (over which space-time scales)? What are the mechanisms for enhancing communication and uptake of GFCS products within the sector, including the associated feedback? Who should undertake the capacity development and how will it be funded (over the various space-time scales)? What role(s) does the sector see being undertaken by NMHSs and WMO (over the various space-time scales)? What does the sector see as the biggest challenge facing the implementation of the GFCS and what can the sector do to overcome them? Who are the key partners in capacity development efforts, and what are the optimal ways to pursue and sustain the partnerships? How does the sector see the coordination and priority setting under the GFCS being done? Questions addressed at meetings (see concept note)

6 Capacity building requirements as determined by the HLTF

7 Areas of capacity building Human capacity Infrastructural capacity Institutional capacity Procedural capacity

8 The investments into Capacity Building under the GFCS

9 Implementation of capacity building in areas Human capacity building includes: Increase interaction between providers & users Improve community collaboration & ability to generate knowledge Mainstream climate change education into curricula at all educational levels Train highly skilled human scientific talent for developing countries Increase access to data, methods & tools

10 Infrastructural & Institutional capacity building includes: Establish clear mandates for CS Identify authoritative services Implement management process Enhance interaction between scientific knowledge and local communities and indigenous peoples practices Improve current observation networks, climate databases and computing powers at all levels Implementation of capacity building in areas

11 Example PPPs - Expanding the reach of early warning and climate information Example PPPs - Expanding the reach of early warning and climate information Weather website Telephone Early-warning dissemination platform Rural meteorological broadcast Electronic screen for meteorological early warning TV weather forecasting Newspapers Mobile phone Information Provision and Feedback FG Hub From Mr. Ramasamy, FAO

12 Procedural capacity building includes: Improve communication between scientists and users (i.e. scientist-user interaction platform) Develop an understanding of the necessary types of climate information for decision making Develop an understanding of the complexity and uncertainties of climate information Integrate user needs into applied research programs Define (quality) standards for climate information generation Improve climate information through feedback mechanisms Implementation of capacity building in areas

13 Guidelines and checklists to ensure adequate procedural capacity National Level Mechanism to link with sectoral ministries & departments Mechanism to ensure rapid dissemination of early warning information Sector-specific impact warning systems, indicators and alert criteria, and risk/disaster management plans prepared Capacity to translate early warning information into local languages Provincial/district level National early warning messages received at the district level Systems to ensure outreach of EWS to the most vulnerable people in place Indigenous knowledge incorporated in EW systems Sector-specific impact outlooks and risk management plans Mechanisms to translate sector-specific outlook and risk management plans Monitoring networks covering most vulnerable communities Community level Early warning messages are received at the community level Contingency and response plans prepared matching categories of extreme climate events Systems to ensure outreach of EWS to the most vulnerable people in place (including, if relevant, translation of messages into local languages) From Mr. Ramasamy, FAO Example

16 EXAMPLE: Indicative Capacity Development Priorities: The User Perspectives InstitutionalTechnicalInfrastructureOperational/procedural Enabling environment Promoting preparation of Master Plan Mainstreaming Institutional mechanisms at decentralized levels Establish additional centres at sub-national level Standardise concepts of operation Incorporating user data; perception of impacts; Effective use of existing climate data; Analysis Customized information products (weather, climate. hydrological) Forecasts (time/space) Data collection, communications and archiving Computing Observation networks Communication facilities, hubs Information desks Harmonizing integrated design Data representing vulnerable eco-systems Concepts of Operation Critical thresholds Thematic working groups Briefing Defining categories Communication to users Regional/national outlook forums Mechanisms to receive information Sectoral nodes Mainstreaming climate concerns into sectoral policies, processes and plans Interpreting forecast products Biophysical modeling Customized Advisories Format of advisories Impact outlooks Decision capacity Understanding information Receiving nodes Information centers Information desks Briefing facility Knowledge centers Linking to existing service providers and end users National forums Workshops Field schools Water schools Risk reduction groups Farmer groups Emergency operations Supply Demand From Mr. Ramasamy, FAO

22 HUMAN Train professionalsTrain intermediariesTrain user communityTrain provider community INFRA Provide all essential climate variables (ECVs) in a continous way and at an adequate quality standard from historic to current data Enhance basic infrastucture (power, internet, etc.) Enhance observation and monitoring infrastructure (station and communication network) Provide adequate maintenance of the infrastructure INST Define and establish mandates and roles for both the providers and the users Define focal points for the GFCS within the provider and the user community Expand startegic plans of provider and user community to include elements relevant to the GFCS Provide feedback avenues for climate service users towards climate service providers Promote multistakeholder meetings for the establishment of a Climate Service Framework Map services, service providers, service users, partnerships and communication channels and identifiy gaps Determine methodologies for monitoring the performance of the GFCS and the climate service provision at all geographic levels Mobilize and secure financing for the successful implementation of the GFCS at all levels PROCEDURAL
