Short summary
Recently, WMO and its Regional Training Centers engaged sustaining member Countries in developing Climate Services. Given its large spatio-temporal variability, Mediterranean is one of the most interseting regions for the application of Seasonal Forecasts. This paper presents a new educational approach, based on a blend of presencial and distance learning, culminated in the development of a course package where lerners can design their own learning path and that can be adapted to other regions.
