The talk will then include a description of these activities and their relationship with international negotiations in the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).  This presentation further describes the conceptual framework of collaboration between the scientific, operational and decision sectors of some socioeconomic sectors, implemented in the context of CLIMAX International Project, to improve the provision and use of climate information in decision making.

The presentation will be followed by a discussion.
