From the CMOS Congress website:
The CMOS Congress in 2020 in Ottawa has the unique opportunity to highlight to policy makers the national observations, research and services that contribute substantively to reduction of society’s risk to extreme weather, climate and environmental events and to outline the challenges facing us in managing our Future Earth environment and societal resilience.
In addition, the Congress can foster cross-disciplinary dialogue amongst research and managerial professionals in meteorology, oceanography, hydrology, earth sciences, environment and social science on challenges facing us nationally and globally.
What measures can be taken to ensure that we have the necessary national and global infrastructure and expertise in place to maintain societal resilience?
Special sessions will be held not only on the use of weather, climate and environmental prediction for risk reduction but also on: (i) protecting Canada’s vast Arctic and sub-Arctic as weather, climate and environment changes and (ii) strengthening cooperation to reduce risks to agriculture and other sectors posed by changing weather and climate.
The Themes under which scientific and technical sessions will be organized are, in no order of priority:
