The 6th Arctic Climate Forum (ACF-6) took place as a virtual meeting on October 28-29 2020, from 16-19 UTC. The meeting was hosted by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), USA, in collaboration with the World Meteorological Organization (WMO).
The key objectives of the ACF-6 were to:
- Develop the consensus statement on the current status (summer-fall 2020) and future outlook (winter 2020-2021) of the Arctic climate on a seasonal scale;
- Raise awareness of end-users about new climate products and services for the Arctic, potential support to decision-making, and the current limitations;
- Interact with end-users and learn about the climate information they currently use for planning, and their needs for climate information.
