Over thirty international participants, mostly academics with different disciplinary backgrounds, climate service providers, government science advisors and consultants, joined four daily 6 hour remote sessions, discussing the ethics of climate services. Following a unanimous vote in favour of creating a code of ethics on the first day, the workshop spent the next three days discussing ethical issues in climate services, debating a code of ethics' structure and content, and considering different methods for its implementation and enforcement. The workshop was organized by an interdisciplinary group of environmental social scientists and philosophers from the University of Leeds as part of the project REACT: Responsible Evidence and Advice for Climate and Technology. Developing a framework for responsible evidence and fair provision of Climate Services.
