  • EXISTING COORDINATION AND COOPERATION MECHANISMS

  • WEAKNESSES AND CHALLENGES

  • WAY FORWARD

1


EXISTING COORDINATION AND COOPERATION MECHANISMS

  • Annual circular letters by PTCs;

  • Side meetings to regional events, including Tropical Cyclone/Hurricane Committees meetings ;

  • Implementation of pilot and demonstration projects on development of new products: SWFDP/DRR, Heat wave, Flash flood forecasting and cross-cutting projects on drought;

5


  • Regional representatives participation in TCs Management Groups and Implementation Coordination Teams;

  • Exchange of lists of WGs and Rapporteurs and harmonization of names of experts in the respective bodies;

  • Designation of regional focal points for DRR, PWS, CLIPS and CPA;

  • Participation of chairpersons of regional WGs or Rapporteurs in the sessions of relevant TCs.

  • Participation of PTCs in sessions of RAs;

  • PRAs attending PTC and Joint Meeting PRA-PTC.

WEAKNESSES AND CHALLENGES

  • Weaknesses

    Differences existing in :

  • RAs needs and requirements

  • Structures and working mechanisms of RAs

  • RAs structure and TCs structure

  • Regionalization of TCs planning, operational and research activities

  • Programming cycles among RAs and with TCs

7

COOPERATION WITH TECHNICAL COMMISSIONS


  • Challenges

    • Mechanism for priority setting ?

    • Establishing RAs long term standing structures facilitating proactive interaction between RAs and TCs:

      Ex: RAs Task Teams for coordination

      with CAeM

    • Resources availability and allotment

10


  • Need for improvement through:

    - Complementary roles/actions

    Secretariat (Departments/Offices)

    RAs ( MGs ? )

    TCs ( MGs ? Task Teams ? )

    - Sharing best practices among RAs and

    with TCs

11


SOME ACTIONS REQUESTED

(Cg, EC, Joint Meeting PRA-PTC)

  • GTS modernization and WIS implementation

  • Establishment of RCCs (CBS, CCl)

  • Maximizing GFCS benefits in Regions, including skills development to apply climate services towards MDGs achievement (CCl, CAgM)

  • Disaster Risk Reduction

  • Climate change adaptation

12


WAY FORWARD

  • Definition of regional requirements and implementation priorities by RAs

  • Organization of activities by TCs to meet the regional requirements

  • Identification of joint activity areas by TCs and RAs

  • Definition and implementation of the process and corresponding means on a case by case basis
