Ensure that climate information products are generated, exchanged and disseminated in a timely manner
Tailor global products to meet regional & national needs
Foster rapid development, operational production and dissemination of climate information at the national level Monitoring & Observations Improve the understanding of the Earth’s climate and assess its impacts on people, ecosystems and infrastructure
Boost the two-way interaction between the researchers and climate information users
Target research towards developing and improving practical applications and information products
Enhance the science readiness level for production of climate projections, predictions, and substantiated user-tailored climate information products. The Goals Reduce vulnerability of society to climate-related hazards
Advance global development goals
Mainstream use of climate information into decision-making
Build relationships
Maximize utility of existing climate service infrastructure Capacity Development Facilitate the provision of improved climate services to people who need it through:
development of interactions between providers of climate services with users;
strengthening national policies and practices on climate data management ;
improved quantity and quality of climate observations and new climate monitoring products ; and
enhanced capacities for provision of seasonal climate outlooks Future Targets 2012 2015 2019 2023 1. Govern the framework
2. Engage users
3. Implement projects
4. Strengthen capacities
5. Report succeses 1. Involve more user groups
2. Expand work beyond pilots
3. Communicate actively
4. Be sustainably resourced
5. Review progress 1. Involve even more user groups
2. Proof advances globally
3. Communicate successes
4. Be sustainably resourced
5. Review framework The User Interface Platform
build dialogue between climate service users & providers
improve climate literacy in the user community
identify optimal methods for obtaining feedback from user communities
•Monitoring and evaluation
develop monitoring and evaluation measures of progress made in improving climate services Enhanced planning of climate induced health risks.

Effective collaboration and joint action through partnerships.

Improved performance and management of health risk assessments and actions.

Greater understanding of patterns of diseases in relation to the environment and climate. Benefits to Health Enhanced lead-time to respond to hazards.

Protect populations & ecosystems through climate informed land-use planning.

Diversified income through climate-smart planning .

Increased livelihood security in climate-sensitive sectors (e.g. agriculture).

Protect & restore ecosystems to mitigate hydro-meterological hazards. Benefits to Disaster Risk Reduction Improved resilience to climate extremes.

Increased and more reliable agricultural productivity.

Better information on food supply/demand situation, crop prospects, food situation and crises.

Reduced sensitivity of rural communities and industries to failed crops and misguided logistics.

Improved decisions communicated through sources agriculture users know and trust. Benefits to Agriculture Enhanced water resources management through climate-smart decisions.

Greater efficiencies and effectiveness in sustainable use of water resources.

Safeguard large investments through appropriate construction of water-related structures.

Improved hydrological modelling by understanding the impacts of climate variability on water resources availability. Benefits to Water Resources Research, Modelling and Prediction Fill gaps in temporal and spatial observational coverage of climate system components
Supply observations of additional Essential Climate Variables
Give attention to data management and data exchange systems
Rescue valuable historical data
Work to ensure that all data needed by climate services are measured and available on a sustained basis
