The World Climate Conference-3 (Geneva 2009) unanimously decided to establish a Global Framework for Climate Services (GFCS), a UN-led initiative spearheaded by WMO to guide the development and application of science-based climate information and services in support of decision-making in climate sensitive sectors. Thirteen heads of state or government, 81 ministers and 2 500 scientists unanimously agreed to develop the GFCS.

GFCS’s vision is “To enable better management of the risks of climate variability and change and adaptation to climate change, through the development and incorporation of science-based climate information and prediction into planning, policy and practice on the global, regional and national scale.”
