Collaboration and Relationship Building, Supporting Ohio Climate Services
We are pleased to announce the Ohio Climate Services Summit scheduled for June 4 to 5, 2019 in Columbus, OH. Many sectors and organizations have direct or indirect interest in climate. Collaboration and relationship building are necessary to ensure effective climate services for Ohio.
We envision that the Ohio Climate Summit will be an opportunity for providers and users of climate services to:
Build increased awareness of existing climate tools, data, individuals, and expertise
Identify climate service needs or gaps within the state
Improve coordination and collaboration among climate service providers and users at the local, state, regional, and national levels
Identify opportunities to seek out additional resources
The summit will help identify Ohio-focused needs as well as build awareness and a shared understanding of climate tools and services. In addition, it will provide an opportunity to build new connections with local, state, regional, tribal, and national efforts. Outcomes from the meeting will help create an approach to organizing and enhancing climate services in Ohio. The summit is the result of a partnership of the State Climate Office of Ohio (SCOO) at The Ohio State University, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), US Department of Agriculture (USDA), and the Midwestern Regional Climate Center (MRCC).
