Background and Overview

CIMR an international symposium on:
Climate Information for Managing Risks

The first CIMR symposium (pronounced “simmer” as things are really heating up) was held in June 2008. One of the recommendations from this event was that a follow-up symposium should be held after 2 to 3 years; hence we are pleased to announce CIMR 2011, which will be held in Orlando, FL on 24-26 May 2011. The full set of recommendations from CIMR 2008 is available at: www.conference.ifas.ufl.edu/CIMR08.

Like CIMR 2008, CIMR 2011 will emphasize the challenges of applying climate information and predictions at local and regional levels, for regions and locations from around the world. The differences between CIMR 2008 and 2011 are several and reflect society’s changing needs for climate information as well as advances in scientific understanding. CIMR 2011 will address climate related vulnerabilities, impacts, and opportunities for adaptation, both mitigation of negative impacts and exploitation of positive impacts. We will address both climate variability and decadal climate change as they affect the most vulnerable sectors, namely, agriculture, water resources, coastal communities and ecosystems, and terrestrial ecosystems.
