Dr Katharine Vincent is in Panama City this week to co-facilitate a workshop on improved science-policy communication. The workshop is the second one to take place under the IDRC-funded project "Integrated Climate Change Modelling and Policy Linkages for Adaptive Planning", implemented by the Climate Systems Analysis Group at the University of Cape Town. The aim of this project is to bridge the knowledge gap between scientists who predict climate and hydrological futures, and policy-makers and planners who need to use this information. The first workshop was technically-oriented, whilst this one brings together water and climate scientists and policy-makers from a variety of Asian and Central and South American countries under the theme "Advancing the application of climate and hydrological information and its translation into policy". The aim is to enhance learning pathways for integrating climate information (current trends and future projections) into water resources management.
