Implementation is achieved through focused projects, connected together in evaluation workshops. The evaluation workshops are focused on developing application-driven protocols for evaluation of localized climate predictions and projections. The infrastructure and protocols from one workshop are used in the next, thereby, developing capacity. The first NCPP workshop (August 2013) is focused on evaluation of downscaled climate projections for the United States.
The implementation supports the NCPP strategic goals of
