Description de l'événement
Presentation of the 2019 report by the World Meteorological Organization: What’s the state of climate services for agriculture?

À propos de cet événement

Weather and climate services are powerful tools to cope with increasing weather extremes, especially in developing countries where many sectors are climate sensitive (agriculture, health, water resources etc…). Their development is recommended in the Paris agreement and the SDGs.

This 2019 State of Climate Services Report, presented by the World Meteorological Organization focuses on agriculture and food security. It reviews countries’ priorities on climate services for adaptation, noting that agriculture is one of the highest, and identifies priority capacity needs. It examines capacity gaps across six components of the climate services value chain including: governance, basic systems, user interface, capacity development, provision and application of climate services, and monitoring and evaluation.

The report provides case studies, examples and explanations as to the role of climate information and services to support agriculture in the face of climate variability and change, assesses gaps and makes recommendations.
