LCCP and Space4Climate organized a discussion bringing together sector practitioners and experts on weather and related data monitoring. This event followed on from our previous Observing London report and findings.
The purpose was to consider how we can better coordinate across data users and providers with different planning and scientific agendas (for example, air quality, heat, other resilience issues) and understand more about what monitoring currently exists, priority data gaps/needs, the potential for placement of monitoring stations, and what the barriers are to monitoring and using weather data.
Given some of the potential research funding opportunities currently in the pipeline, this event was also meant to generate evidence in support of proposals.
