Review of Global Framework for Climate Services

Lead CCASS Contact: Andrea Gerlak

An interdisciplinary team from the University of Arizona (Andrea Gerlak of the Udall Center and the School of Geography and Development, and Zack Guido and Chris Knudson of the Institute of the Environment) spent 13 days in three African countries to evaluate the role and impact of the World Meteorological Organization’s Global Framework for Climate Services. GFCS aims to bring climate information to bear on climate challenges in developing countries.  WMO is assessing the first seven years of GFCS activities, so as to gather lessons learned and offer recommendations for future implementation.
