World Weather Attribution / Climate and Development Knowledge Network
WWA is a Climate Central funded project to prepare for and do rapid attributions of extreme weather and climate events to external factors, notably anthropogenic climate change. It is a partnership of Climate Central, KNMI, Oxford ECI, the University of Melborne and the Red Cross / Red Crescent Climate Centre. It applies a scientific approach that combines observational data, analysis of a range of models, peer-reviewed research and on-the-ground reports. It provides a statement about (and uncertainties on) extreme weather and its relationship with climate change within a few weeks after it occurred. Slow attribution projects are used to practice. CDKN is a UK/Dutch project funded by development agencies to develop climate knowledge. KNMI acts as subcontractor of Climate Central. In this project we develop the capability to do rapid (and slow) attribution in East Africa and South Asia.
