From a gaps analysis and impacts assessment to prioritization: the current GAIA-CLIM plans

The H2020 GAIA-CLIM project is undergoing a gaps and impacts assessment process. This is to lead, in the final year, to the creation of a set of prioritized recommendations for subsequent actions which could solve or mitigate the issues which have been identified. This work shall start in March 2017 and run through February 2018. Although the scope of the GAIA-CLIM assessment is much narrower, being limited to gaps relevant to the aims of the project to better use non-satellite observational assets to understand and constrain satellite measurements of atmospheric ECVs, there are process overlaps. In this presentation formative plans for the next step of going to a prioritized set of actions shall be discussed. This shall consider important issues such as inter-alia: intended audience, ensuring reflection of broad community priorities, prioritization, thematic clustering, and clustering by means of delivery etc.. The work shall be led by Peter Thorne, GAIA-CLIM coordinator but require input from both internal and external experts and stakeholders to the project to be useful and useable. Constructive criticisms on the plans presented shall be greatly appreciated.
