Register for the forthcoming ICTP Summer School at the East Africa Institute of Fundamental Research by 23 June 2017.

This school focuses on subseasonal to seasonal prediction research and related climate products, as many management decisions in agriculture and food security, water, disaster risk reduction and health fall into this range. There is an urgent need to improve the resiliency of tropical developing countries to climate and weather shocks. Improved subseasonal to seasonal forecasts of rainfall hold the promise of effective early warning systems for floods and droughts, and actionable information for decision makers in agriculture, water management, and public health. Examples include the timing of the onset of rainy seasons, timing on monsoon breaks and active spells, and the probability of high-impact weather events. This school will expose participants from operational centers and universities to a major new initiative to bridge the gap between weather and seasonal climate forecasts; it will train them to access the new multi-model S2S database of subseasonal to seasonal forecasts, and make analyses of forecast skill and predictability mechanisms.
