The goals of the workshop were to identify observational requirements for adaptation, to review the Essential Climate Variables (ECVs) to determine their adequacy for adaptation, and to support the development of a new implementation plan to address the gaps and deficiencies identified. The workshop was closely aligned with the implementation of the GFCS. Consistent with the four GFCS priority areas, individual sessions addressed agriculture, water resources, health, and disaster risk reduction issues, among others. In addition, the sessions on data rescue and data management and observations for research, modelling and assessment are highly relevant to the User Interface Platform and Research Modelling and Prediction pillars of GFCS respectively. Workshop results will also directly feed into the preparation of the next GCOS Progress and Adequacy Report, to be developed in the 2014/15 timeframe.
