8 Capacity building investment: National capacity upgrade: 70 countries do not have basic climate services; Regional centers: 4 new centers and 4 upgraded (would fill gaps in existing system); Observing stations: an additional 100 surface & 10 upper air stations (approx) needed; Governance and management to be set up ASAP; Total investment USD M. a year
