The second High-level Session of the Open Consultative Platform (OCP-HL-2) will be held on 26 and 27 May as an online event (Two-day online; 1.5-hour per day). The session will discuss progress in thematic areas identified as “grand challenges” at the High-Level Round Table (OCP-HL-1). The Session will focus on two of the five themes of common concern for the stakeholders from all sectors identified at OCP-HL-1: A) the future of weather and climate forecasting, and B) the evolving roles and responsibilities – the future of the National Meteorological and Hydrological Services. The discussions will support the building of a common vision of the weather and climate community with horizon 2030 and beyond.
OCP-HL-2 will be hosted by the WMO Secretary-General, Prof. Petteri Taalas, and the President of the WMO, Prof. Gerhard Adrian. And the two 90-minute thematic sessions will be moderated by Erica Grow (USA) and Gerald Fleming (Ireland). A high-level panel with up to fifteen invited participants will follow after the presentations to delve further into the highly important themes, aiming at formulating key messages on the way forward. The outcome of the session will be published as an OCP-HL-2 Summary with Key Messages shortly after the event.
Date/Time: 26-27 May 2021, 15:00 - 16:30 (CEST/GMT+2)
