Coordinating (national) climate research

Climate research in Norway is being coordinated – good idea!

Quote: “Klima21 is a strategic forum for climate research established by the Norwegian Government. The forum’s objectives are to draw up a cohesive strategy for Norwegian climate research and to facilitate the application of research findings in a manner beneficial to society.

The efforts of the Klima21 forum will provide knowledge about how and why the climate is changing – and the ensuing ramifications for various sectors of society and the public at large. The forum will examine topics such as climate change and its impact, adaptive responses to climate change, climate policy, and the reduction of greenhouse gases and other pertinent countermeasures.”

Are other people doing similar stuff? Do we need international coordination of climate research as well?
