Sustained observations of the global climate system are essential for understanding, predicting, mitigating and adapting to climate change.  Sustained observations of the global climate system are essential for understanding, predicting, mitigating and adapting to climate change.  

The Global Climate Observing System (GCOS) supported by EUMETSAT will be holding a conference to assess how the current global climate observing system can be improved to better support current and near-term user needs for climate information. This conference follows on from the first climate observation conference, Global Climate Observation: The Road to The Future held on 2–4 March 2016 in Amsterdam. 

The conference will take into account the GCOS Status Report 2021 as well as the GCOS Implementation Plan 2022 (in preparation), which will make recommendations to meteorological networks, ocean and land major observing systems and satellite agencies and will be presented to the UNFCCC in 2022.  A scientific committee is being setup under the leadership of Prof. Sabrina Speich, and an invitation for abstracts will be issued in March 2022.
