Meeting on the Implementation Coordination of the GFCS

Event Tabs

Monday, September 29, 2014 to Wednesday, October 1, 2014

The GFCS Implementation Plan, with its five pillars and four sector/thematic exemplars, provides a blueprint for assessing the status of, and needs for, climate services including at country-level.  In addition to the active engagement of technical commissions and WMO Members and regional and global centers, the GFCS Implementation Plan calls for the active involvement of partner agencies and various experts and stakeholders (Extraordinary Session of World Meteorological Congress Resolution 1 (Cg-Ext. (2012)). Key international and UN organizations working in areas related to the GFCS are leading implementation of the GFCS. Major programmes being implemented by these partners at country level provide a foundation on which GFCS implementation can build.

Now that the GFCS has moved into an implementation phase, it is critical that the roles and contributions of WMO (technical commissions, programmes, expert working groups) and of partner agencies are specified. Given that many key decisions are taken at the country level the focus will be on a group of illustrative countries as a starting point for defining the coordina­tion needs and opportunities in implementation of the GFCS. Hence the Meeting on the Implementation Coordination of the GFCS is being organized from 29 September to 1 October 2014 in WMO, Geneva.
