To assess the status of the CCI+ phase 1 programme implementation, the following questions should be addressed:
- Is CCI providing the relevant policy information to UNFCCC climate activities (e.g. through the research community contributing to IPCC)?
- Is CCI taking full advantage of ESA and European EO missions and multi-disciplinary scientific expertise to create high quality climate records?
- Is CCI addressing new science questions in an innovative way and taking a leading role in science development through building an active climate community?
- Is CCI actively fostering the link between climate observations and the climate modelling community?
- Is CCI adequately connected and responsive to the needs of the wider international climate research networks and communities, e.g. including GCOS, WCRP, CEOS, CGMS, SCO, GEO, Future Earth etc?
- Is CCI complementary to other relevant ECV development activities in Europe and supporting the transfer into operational climate services?
- Is CCI developing best practice for climate data record creation, including uncertainty estimation, cross-ECV consistency, data standards and validation?
- Is the Knowledge Exchange Strategy successfully raising awareness of the ground-breaking science being performed by CCI and enhancing activities in the domains of communication, education and outreach?
