Principles of the Framework

Principles for implementing the Framework

  • High priority for the needs of climate-vulnerable developing countries
  • Primary focus is the better access and use of climate information by users
  • Framework will address needs at three spatial scales: global, regional and national
  • Climate services must be operational and continuously updated
  • Climate information is primarily an international public good and governments will have a central role in the Framework
  • Framework will encourage global, free and open exchange of climate-relevant data
  • Framework will facilitate and strengthen - not duplicate
  • The Framework will be built through partnerships
