Summary

The WMO Conference on “Living with Climate Variability and Change: Understanding the Uncertainties and Managing the Risks” was organized to review the opportunities and constraints in integrating climate risks and uncertainties into decision-making in the core socio-economic sectors. The Conference, co-sponsored by the WMO, the Finnish Meteorological Institute (FMI) and the International Research Institute for Climate and Society (IRI), brought together climate scientists and user communities, to collate their experiences in managing risks of climatic origin and to build a framework for future strategies. The Conference drew on experience presented by experts from both private and public organizations. It also benefited from poster presentations by participants as well as from discussions during plenary and breakout sessions. The main results of the Conference are synthesized in the “Espoo Statement”, included in this report.
