The "9th NOAA-Indonesia Ocean-Climate Observations, Analysis and Applications Partnership Workshop” will be held in Jakarta on August 20-23, 2014.
This year Indonesia's Weather and Climate Agency (BMKG) will be hosting NOAA and University Colleagues from CPO Climate Observations, NWS Climate Services Division, PMEL, Columbia and the University of Washington.
Training sessions will include: Climate Decision Support, Indian Ocean RAMA data, Seasonal Forecasting techniques, Indonesian Throughflow and Argo Technology.
In exchange for capacity development in these areas, Indonesia provides ship support to NOAA for its eastern Indian Ocean RAMA operations and ship time coordination for the Indonesian Throughflow observations. Such Partnerships between developing and developed Nations are consistent with the aspirations of the PANGEA concept of JCOMM.
Americans’ health, security and economic wellbeing are tied to climate and weather. Every day, we see communities grappling with environmental challenges due to unusual or extreme events related to climate and weather. In 2011, the United States experienced a record high number (14) of climate- and weather-related disasters where overall costs reached or exceeded $1 billion. Combined, these events claimed 670 lives, caused more than 6,000 injuries, and cost $55 billion in damages. Businesses, policy leaders, resource managers and citizens are increasingly asking for information to help them address such challenges.
