Climate Change Information Spread Desired
Demand for climate information to inform decision- and policymaking is growing as the private and public sectors recognize its relevance and value in mitigating and adapting to climate change.
Users are seeking tailored and actionable climate information on a wide range of timescales, from past, current and future climate. Their needs are broad, including long-term decisions and planning, early warning of potential hazards and managing risks arising from climate variability and change.
A focus for collaboration within the WMO-led Global Framework for Climate Services (GFCS) is to ensure that providers of climate prediction products interact more effectively with users to meet this demand by developing climate services.
