White Paper on the Contribution of the Global Framework for Climate Services to Transforming our World: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (Agenda 2030)

Climate service providers and their services are critical in supporting the achievement of the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda. The majority of the 17 SDGs, many of their 169 targets and activities to be implemented under the internationally agreed objectives are weather- and climate-sensitive. This white paper articulates the contribution of the Global Framework for Climate Services (GFCS) to supporting the SDGs (through the activities of GFCS partners), focusing on the five GFCS priority areas, but also covering the multitude of SDGs that could benefit from enhanced availability and access to climate services.
