An important activity under the World Climate Services Programme (WCSP) is to foster effective application of climate knowledge and information for the benefit of society and the provision of climate services, including the prediction of significant climate variations both natural and as a result of human activity. The Climate Information and Prediction Services (CLIPS) project is an implementation arm of WCSP around the globe. It strives to take advantage of current data bases, increasing climate knowledge and improving prediction capabilities to limit the negative impacts of climate variability and to enhance planning activities based on the developing capacity of climate science.
