The Global Climate Observing System (GCOS) Science Day aims at informing the regional and national community on activities related to systematic climate observations and their relevance to pressing environmental concerns. The 2018 Day will focus on local actions with regard to climate observations, science and adaptation in the Arctic region. The event will consist of four sessions: GCOS activities in global and regional context; the Arctic now and tomorrow; science-based information for decision makers; and climate change and observing initiatives.
GCOS is co-sponsored by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC), the International Council for Science and the UN Environment Programme (UNEP, or UN Environment).
