The Met Office appointed a team led by JBA Consulting in October 2020 to deliver the ‘Climate services standards and value’ project that is developing a new standards framework for climate services and developing and testing a methodology for monitoring and valuing climate services. The project has carried out its initial scoping stage and has held a stakeholder engagement event in April 2021. This webinar will update participants on the purpose of the project, progress so far and plans for the future. Climate services is a broad term that will be defined in the webinar: it refers to services with a clear link to underpinning science that are used to make decisions to manage climate-related risk.
