Step-by-step Guidelines for Establishing a National Framework for Climate Services

This publication is intended to assist National Meteorological and Hydrological Services and their partner institutions at a national level, engaged under the five pillars of the Global Framework for Climate Services, to establish a National Framework for Climate Services. Such a national framework aims to coordinate institutions and enable them to work together to co-design, co-produce, communicate, deliver and use climate services for decision-making in climate-sensitive socioeconomic sectors.

Strengthening Climate Information Services in Africa: Where are the Opportunities?

"Climate sensitive information needs to reach the right people for the appropriate decision that needs to be is not just about useful information, but about valuable information based on user needs".

This widely agreed-upon statement was made by Youcef Ait Chellouche of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) in September 2017, when the Africa meteorology and hydromet community came together to call for regional cooperation, gender-inclusion, and private sector engagement to improve climate information services (CIS).

The Role of Public-Private Partnerships in Delivering Climate Information Services in Africa

While public sector interest in climate information services (CIS) is concerned with resilience in the face of climate variability and change, the private sector is beginning to recognize that there is a growing market for climate services. Public-private partnerships (PPPs) are helping to bridge gaps in public services around the globe.
