The IBFW project will consist of three stages:
1) Conduct a gap analysis
2) Hold a workshop series
3) Produce written outputs.
1. Gap analysis
Project team members will conduct a gap analysis throughout 2022, reviewing available literature, previous workshop and conference session outputs, the Expert Team guidance and more. The team will identify further gaps through discussions with experts worldwide.
There will be a three-part virtual workshop series in October 2022. These interactive workshops will be free and open to anyone wishing to take part. They will be held in English, and on the dates (in UTC) of 3, 11 and 19 October - exact times will be updated when determined. Please register your interest by filling in the following Form https://forms.microsoft.com/r/YNh2gKWvda. We will send more information and recordings afterwards to everyone who has registered.
We will publish the findings of the project in a peer-reviewed and open-access journal article, with summaries on the HIWeather website, and newsletters for WWRP and HIWeather. We will prepare a plan to guide addressing the knowledge, data, and methodological gaps that have been identified from a research perspective.
