Subject: RE: Impacts

Dear all,

Thanks to all for providing inputs about research themes/priorities and about board
members.

Sorry to add one more task but the one thing that we still need to gather ideas for, is a
section early in the bid that will state the expected impacts of the network as a whole
(i.e. of the research, advisory services, knowledge disemination and capacity building). I
think this is important - there is some cynicism out there about what this �40million can
really achieve above and beyond all the other climate change initiatives ongoing. I think
DfID will enjoy some clear vision on this matter. What will all this research and
disemmination achieve?

We really need this by tomorrow
best wishes
Adrian

Subject: RE: Annual review

Dear All


Quick update before I leave for Singapore. I just had an hour long conversation with
Shardul about being named as potential CEO of the bid. I filled him on the background to
the bid and how we plan to set things up. He raised a series of issues about the value
added of such a network and how it would interact with other existing initiatives.


Anyway, on whether he would take this on.


He has one of the few permanent positions at OECD, is not many years from retirement and
has a lot to lose so:


* asks that we treat his potential candidacy with high confidentiality as he is well
known at DFID and word will get out quickly
* might want to combine this post with a chair and tenured position (perhaps 50/60% as
CEO, the rest in an academic position, presumably at UEA)
* he couldn't imagine combining this role with ongoing work at OECD as there would be a
conflict of interest since he has to work with so many different donors in his current
role
* the other possibility is to request a secondment or leave of absence from OECD
* he would want a lead time of some months after set up to negotiate terms with DFID, us
etc. This means we would still near an interim director
* he would want to know that the funding is secure irrespective of change of government.
The Tories have said they won't cut development spending but politicians change their
minds... he doesn't want to run something which might be scaled down or not even funded
at all
* he wouldn't want his name put forward as one among many but as our preferred choice

All of this strikes me as reasonable, hence my expressed concerns about trying to get a
named senior individual to commit to something like this when there is so much uncertainty.

If we decide to go forward with this, we'll need a form of wording that is acceptable to
him.

I'll be in touch again in a week when I'm back from Singapore


Best wishes


Peter

Dear Phil, Elizabeth and Katharine,


I apologies for my delay in getting back to you.


Suggestions for the Science area outside of UEA would be:

(please note these are UK based and going beyond both the UK and Annex 1 nations would
likely be of benefit for a Dfid call?)


Clearly Hadley is appropriate - and whilst it is involved with another consortium I thought
this time Dfid had asked for non-exclusivity? If so suggestions are:

John Mitchell

Richard Betts

Jason Lowe

Chris Jones


I also suggest these by complemented with non-Hadley scientists - my immediate
recommendations are

Peter Cox University of Exeter

Dave Stainforth UCL

Dave Frame Oxford

John Shepherd Southampton


In terms of translating science related to the global situation to more regional impacts,
Chris West (UKCP09 & Oxford) would be a good place to start.


Kind regards


Kevin

Thank you all for these comments. As you see, I have incorporated them into a document
which Elizabeth will work on next week (when I'm absent on vacation) as part of the CABI
contribution - which is to say the version you see here probably will not be the version
you see sent from her next week (not least because of its length). However, I am still
missing names on the science: Kevin. My apologies if you've sent these already but could
you please forward any proposed names to Elizabeth Dodsworth?


Best wishes

Thanks.


In terms of names who would be appropriate on adaptation etc (I think a few UEA names
would be good to include):


Barry Smit University Guelph

Sam Fankhauser (LSE and UK Climate Change Committee)

Richard Klein (SEI)

Ian Burton (Environment Canada)

Ian Noble World Bank

Neil Leary (Dickinson College and former START and AIACC project)

Coleen Vogel (Univ Wits)

Tony Nyong (African Development Bank)

Victor Cruz (University Philippines)

Bruce Capmbell Climate Change Challenge CGIAR etc - maybe in another category

Daniel Murdiyarso - CIFOR Indonesia

Tao Wang - now with WWF China


Hope these help stuimulate thoughts



Neil

Dear Phil


Thanks for this. I am copying to other colleagues at UEA that are part of the bid to
suggest names to you (which I will also do of course). One way would be to aim for a mix of
specialists across each of the themes that the 'Climate Exchange' (CCDKN) will focus on (i)
climate science (of particular importance for developing countries) (ii) low carbon
development (iii) adaptation and (iv) international policy for development.


As I mentioned at the meeting in London, one way of ensuring synergy across the research
and this annual review will be to summarise latest research in these areas, rather than
duplicate what the IPCC and other do.


Assuming you agree with this, can I invite colleagues to submit a few names under these
headings? Kevin on the science, Neil and Kate on adaptation. I'll send some on low carbon
development and international policy.


Best wishes


Peter

Subject: Annual review

Peter


I'm tasked with considering how we manage the outputs of the Annual Review and will be
recommending that a small external Editorial Board is responsible for QA and identification
of authors to be commissioned to write reviews of key papers/findings etc. The EB will have
to be a mix of eminent research, social and policy experts and can of course, at least in
part, be drawn from some of the consortium (especially UEA) staff. Meanwhile, I've been
Googling for resources that rank scientists in terms of their climate science citations
and/or absolute outputs - as potential candidates to approach for an EB. The site I've come
across at [15]UToronto may not be valid, so are there sites doing this you can also
recommend?


Are the names below, from the UToronto list known to you and worth approaching as a
lined-up EB member? I've taken an arbitrary selection of names from key institutes
(excluding the rival Hadley Centre) and included names lower down the rankings who could be
put forward as representing some Southern science)


Ranking: 1 Jean Jouzel, CNRS France Ice core data

2 Kevin Trenberth, NCAR, US Decadal variance

3 Joseph Berry, Carnegie, US Plant physiology

5 James Hurrell, NCAR, US NAO

8 Philip Jones, UEA Surface temperature
trends

22 Martin Heimann, MPI Germany Carbon cycle

35 Robert Dickinson, GIT, US Biogeochem Cycles

41 Navin Ramankutty*, McGill, Can Biosphere modelling (*India)

57 Filippo Giorgi, Abdul Salam, Italy Regional modelling

63 Mario Molina*, Scripps US Ozone loss (*Nobel winner,
Mexico)

77 Andre Berger, Louvain, Bel Orbital forcings

79 Venkatachalam Ramaswany, NOAA US



All the best
