1 World Meteorological Organization Working together in weather, climate and water Global Framework for Climate Services: Climate Services for All Filipe D. F. Lúcio Head Global Framework for Climate Services Capacity Development Consultation Meeting WMO

2 2 Global Framework for Climate Services Goal: –Enable better management of the risks of climate variability and change and adaptation to climate change at all levels, through development and incorporation of science-based climate information and prediction into planning, policy and practice. WORLD CLIMATE CONFERENCE - 3 Geneva, Switzerland 31 August–4 September 2009

3 Why a Framework for Climate Services? Capacity Development Consultation Meeting3

4 Why a Framework for Climate Services? Present capabilities for providing climate services do not exploit all that we know about climate Present capabilities fall far short of meeting current and future needs and delivering their full and potential benefits, especially in developing countries The Framework for Climate Services will build on existing capacities and leverage these through coordination to address shortcomings Capacity Development Consultation Meeting4

5 Why a Framework for Climate Services? Many countries lack the infrastructural, technical, human and institutional capacities to provide high-quality climate services. Infrastructural Capacities of Countries as of Aug 2010 to provide Basic, Essential, Full and Advanced Climate Services. Capacity Development Consultation Meeting5

6 Why a Framework for Climate Services? Capacity Development Consultation Meeting6

7 High-Level Taskforce on GFCS Capacity Development Consultation Meeting7

8 The Taskforce Joaquim CHISSANO (Mozambique) Jan EGELAND (Norway) Co-chair Angus FRIDAY (Grenada) Eugenia KALNAY (Ms) (Argentina/USA) Ricardo LAGOS (Chile) Julia MARTON-LEFEVRE (Ms) (Hungary/France/USA) Khotso MOKHELE (South Africa) Chiaki MUKAI (Ms) (Japan) Cristina NARBONA RUIZ (Ms) (Spain) QIN Dahe (China) Emil SALIM (Indonesia) Mahmoud ABU-ZEID (Egypt) Co-chair Fiame Mata Afa (Ms) (Samoa) Capacity Development Consultation Meeting8

9 Report of the Tasforce Capacity Development Consultation Meeting

10 The vision of the GFCS Capacity Development Consultation Meeting 10

11 The vision of the GFCS By 2015, the Framework will establish: 1. A global system to routinely generate and electronically exchange an extensive set of defined climate data and data products 2. An initiative in developing countries to upgrade the climate service capacities and strategies of all vulnerable and low-capacity countries to a baseline level 3. An initial suite of new knowledge products – protocols, tools, products and services – developed through multiple initiatives on user interfacing and services development 4. An ongoing governance mechanism that drives the Frameworks development, particularly by engaging and mobilising stakeholders, user communities and new resources Capacity Development Consultation Meeting 11

12 The Recommendations of the HLT Recommendation #1 Invest USD 75 M/year to create and sustain a global Framework Around USD 72 M/year for projects in the developing world, Around USD 3 M/year for a small secretariat supporting Board and technical committees Capacity Development Consultation Meeting 12

13 Title (11.1.x – 11.1.y)

14 Recommendation #2 Capacity Development Consultation Meeting14

15 Recommendation #3 Establish ad-hoc technical group for detailed implementation plan within next six months: - modalities for operation of the Framework; –high priority, fast-track projects; –draft terms of reference for committees that will carry out the work of the Framework. Capacity Development Consultation Meeting 15

16 Recommendation #4 Governments and development agencies give high priority to national capacity building in developing countries Rapidly strengthen, or create the new regional elements of the Framework Capacity Development Consultation Meeting16

17 GFCS Priorities All sectors to be tackled but in the first four years the GFCS is proposing giving priority to: Agriculture Disaster risk reduction Water Health Capacity Development Consultation Meeting17

18 Capacity Development to support Climate Services 18Capacity Development Consultation Meeting

19 Areas of capacity development Human capacity Infrastructural capacity Procedural capacity Institutional capacity Capacity development should: address both demand and supply sides be Service oriented respond to users needs be balanced with climate science capabilities

20 Implementation of capacity development Human capacity development Equipping individuals with understanding, skills, information, knowledge and training -Interaction btw. providers & users -Mainstreaming climate change education into curricula at all educational levels -Training of highly skilled human scientific talent for developing countries -Access to data, methods & tools Capacity Development Consultation Meeting

21 Implementation of capacity developments Infrastructural Capacity Enabling access to the resources needed to generate, archive and use climate data and decision-relevant information Category2010 Baseline, States/territory Less than Category 16 Category I64 Category II56 Category III39 Category IV24 Total189 Capacity Development Consultation Meeting

22 Implementation of capacity development Procedural Capacity Defining, implementing, and advancing best practices for generating and using climate services -Improvement of communication btw. scientists and users (i.e. scientist- user interaction platform) -Development of an understanding of the necessary types of climate information for decision making -Development of an understanding of the complexity and uncertainties of climate information -Integration of user needs into applied research programs -Definition of (quality) standards for climate information generation -Improvement of climate information through feedback mechanisms Capacity Development Consultation Meeting

23 Implementation of capacity development Institutional Capacity Equipping individuals with understanding, skills, information, knowledge and training -Establishment of clear mandates for CS -Identification of authoritative sources of services -Implementation of management processes -Enhanced interaction btw. scientific knowledge and local communities and indigenous peoples practices -Improvement of current observation networks, climate databases and computing powers at all levels Capacity Development Consultation Meeting

24 Essential climate related capabilities of a NMS Observation: –Data mgmnt with quality assurance (archives & rescue) –Climate standards (i.e. those of GCOS) –Historical & real-time observations of the Essential Climate Variables –Contribute data to WIS –Improve station density Research: –Participate in field experiments and applied research Capacity bldg: –Participate in training and/or conduct it –Participate in Regional Climate Outlook Forums User interface: –Interact with user to meet requests and improve products –Contribute to Regional or National Climate Outlook Forums Capacity Development Consultation Meeting
