In this episode, we have a frank conversation about why people use, or don’t use climate information. Seasonal forecasts are presented as a particularly interesting example, because, despite the potential value of seasonal forecasts for informing decision-making in the farming sector for example, they aren’t used much. In fact there seems to be quite a bit of confusion and misunderstandings about what seasonal forecasts are communicating. To unpack some of the mystery of seasonal forecasts, Chris Jack speaks to Peter Johnston and Anna Steynor from CSAG about potential benefits of seasonal forecasts and some of the barriers to use. Together, they discuss and explore the complex decision making landscape and how research outputs such as seasonal forecasts could be enhanced so that they are more relevant for decision making.
