Climate services are delivered with the goal of generating climate information that is relevant to users and stimulating the quantification of the impacts of climate change variability as well as the implementation of adaptation solutions. While advances in technology offer opportunities to generate and disseminate climate information more effectively, they pose a particular challenge in the Canadian Arctic considering that information technology infrastructure remains relatively limited to access data for both storage and dissemination.This session aims to provide an overview of scientific progress in producing Arctic-specific and improved climate information from weather observations to seasonal forecasts and climate projections. It is also an opportunity to share knowledge on dissemination modes adapted to the social and technological context of the Arctic and designed to facilitate the integration of climate information into the decision-making process.
