Action Items and Resolutions

Resolution: Consistent with Unidata's strategic plans and with efforts to facilitate climate data services development, the Policy Committee endorses an emphasis on both the CF Conventions layer in Unidata software and on helping to advance the development of the CF Conventions, for the benefits to the current Unidata community and for interoperability of tools and data in other communities. The Policy Committee also encourages efforts from the CF Conventions Committee to establish a position, hosted at the Unidata Program Center, that combines CF Coordinator and Data Scientist, if funding resources can be obtained among the many stakeholder organizations that benefit from sustained support for the CF Conventions.
