The second Stakeholder Engagement Knowledge Exchange event entitled “Ocean observations and predictions in response to the climate emergency” was held in Edinburgh (UK) on 16 October 2019. The event was hosted and moderated by Blue-Action, with five speakers representing partners across the consortium.
The goal of this event was to share cutting-edge research by Blue-Action on ocean observations and model projections, and how this work can lead to robust predictions of the physical characteristics and productivity of Scottish seas up to a decade in advance.
The audience was comprised of invited stakeholders across academia, industry, NGOs and policymaking. The structure and outcomes of this event are described in this deliverable, with references to the outputs and documentation.
The key take-home messages from this event form the basis of a new publicly available document published by Blue-Action to highlight the importance of ocean observations and predictions and translation to climate services to relevant sectors. With this action, Blue-Action has increased its profile in Scotland, and built a reputation as a valuable and reputable source of climate information.
