CLIPS Objectives

The objectives of CLIPS, as refined by the Thirteenth World Meteorological Congress in 1999, are:

  1. To encourage the development of operational climate prediction;
  2. To demonstrate the value and eventual socio-economic benefits of climate information and prediction services;
  3. To provide an international framework to enhance and promote climate information and prediction, including the establishment of criteria to measure forecast quality and to permit model inter-comparison;
  4. To facilitate the definition, the development and the strengthening of a global network of regional/national climate centres.
