They shared cutting-edge health and climate research with an emphasis on data methodologies and tools that are needed for strengthening health policy and practice in resource-poor settings. In particular, participants considered:
- Data: How best to use data from historical climate observations, environmental monitoring and forecasting and prediction to improve the management of climate sensitive outcomes.
- Technology: Freely-available technologies capable of managing vast data sets and transforming them into locally-relevant products that can be disseminated within health sector tools.
- Training: Opportunities for targeted training, education and long-term investments in user and stakeholder engagement in order to leverage these newly available resources.
