Report on PACCSAP Technical Training Workshop Honiara, Solomon Islands, 18-22 March 2013

The Pacific-Australia Climate Change Science and Adaptation Planning (PACCSAP) Science Program conducted the PACCSAP Technical Training Workshop in Honiara, Solomon Islands, from 18th to 22nd March 2013, as part of the Program’s ongoing work to develop science capacity in National Meteorological Services (NMSs) and other key stakeholders in the Pacific and East Timor. Such enhanced capacity is expected to facilitate active in-­country collaboration for purposes of undertaking climate research and for better understanding and communicating climate science to meet the broader needs of key regional and partner country stakeholders.

One of the key objectives of the PACCSAP Science Program is to develop the capacity of Pacific island scientists, decision-­makers and planners to access and apply scientific climate information and digital tools to facilitate use of science-­‐based evidence to inform in-­country climate adaptation responses. The workshop was an opportunity for NMSs and representatives from regional organizations and sectors to engage in technical training for tools and services being designed and utilized under PACCSAP, and to engage in further discussion with the Science Program team about scientific achievements and technical training opportunities under PACCSAP so far. The event was specifically targeted at NMS technical representatives, but with provision for limited other participants also, and aimed to provide an efficient and effective capacity development and networking opportunity.

The Technical Training Workshop was delivered jointly by the Bureau, CSIRO and GeoScience Australia, specifically as part of the PACCSAP Science Program, and was run as an adjunct activity to the PACCSAP Science Symposium run immediately prior in Honiara during March 2013.
