Resumen

"This meeting [had] to consider its work plan which [included] • A status report or similar in 4 years and update of IP in 5 years

• Reviewing the performance of ECV observations and progress on actions in the implementation plan

• Consideration of Adaptation Needs -> what does it mean for panel/observations

• The proposal for Evaporation/Latent Heat Flux. During the discussion it was stressed that the new work cycle of the TOPC after the release of the GCOS implementation plan will be challenging particularly because adaptation and mitigation will become increasingly important for GCOS. This also implies a shift in the expertise of the panel. Related parameters such as carbon flux measurements or human water use will be very relevant for global, regional and local policies. The important role of GCOS in IPCC was underlined."
