Living with climate change; how systemizing predictions of water conditions helps us adapt to a changing climate
Location: IPCC-WMO-UKMO Science Pavilion
18.00 – 19.00 GMT

This event provides an overview of the World Meteorological Organization’s Hydrological Status and Outlook System (HydroSOS): A system for monitoring and predicting global freshwater hydrological conditions. HydroSOS provides a platform for assessing the current hydrological availability and providing outlooks under changing climate. Water status and outlook systems are key components of evidence-based decision-making regarding climate change adaptation. The event will feature an outline of the HydroSOS concept, progress in the project so far which includes the technical developments done during the pilot phase, and a presentation on the challenges and opportunities associated with global implementation.
