Key idea: To improve seasonal forecasts in South America, a region where there is seasonal forecast skill and useful value

  • Strengthen collaboration and promote exchange of expertise and information between European and South American seasonal forecasters

  • Produce improved well-calibrated real-time probabilistic seasonal forecasts for South America

  • Develop real-time forecast products for non-profitable governmental use (e.g. reservoir management, hydropower production, and agriculture).
