High Impact Weather: Working in Partnerships to Reduce Risk.

The EMS & ECAM meetings aim at fostering exchange and cross-fertilisation of ideas in the meteorological, climatological and related communities, focusing particularly on strategic issues relevant to the future of meteorology in Europe.

The theme emphasises the partnership dimension of meteorological services. Developing and sharing skills, technology and infrastructure across organisations is required to achieve maximum utility from knowledge of the weather, in particular in high impact situation.

The ECAM-sessions address how to develop multi-hazard partnerships and impact-based warnings. Working in partnership to reduce risk to the public and the infrastructure requires:

-consciousness on how forecasters express advice and warnings
-knowledge of specific requirements of the customers
-impact-based verification of forecasts and warnings
-efficient and transparent communication in high impact weather situations
