The Sixth Symposium on U.S-International Partnerships is sponsored by the American Meteorological Society and organized by the AMS International Affairs Committee.
In its first five years, the annual Symposium on U.S. International Partnerships has been focused on exploring the growth of public-private-academic partnerships in NMHSs and other water and climate agencies across the globe. Building on the decision of the Eighteenth World Meteorological Congress (June 2019, Geneva) and its Geneva Declaration - 2019: Building Community for Weather, Climate and Water Actions, these activities have been accelerating during recent years.
We are pleased to announce this Call for Abstracts for the Sixth Symposium on U.S. International Partnerships. The 101st Annual Meeting will have a significant online component due to the ongoing pandemic, we strongly encourage abstracts from entities across the world that may not traditionally have been able to attend in-person AMS annual meetings to this special session of the International Symposium.
Given the considerable interest in the invited panel at the 100th Annual AMS Meeting earlier this year, the goal of the Symposium is to highlight “Public-Private Partnerships in the Weather Enterprise Across the World” and to present diverse cross-sector collaboration.
The objective of the paper/poster session is to demonstrate and promote such innovative and collaborative solutions with examples from various players across the weather/water/climate enterprise and are interested in how you are measuring success and tracking lessons learned. If you or your organization are involved with such a partnership, we welcome your submission to further the discussion in this important area.
Consistent with AMS policy, we welcome abstracts from underrepresented groups across diverse professions, sectors and entities.
