Climate Prediction for Small Island Nations

This newly published WMO brochure shows how some of the world’s smallest island nations are now using new climate prediction tools to boost their economies and enhance livelihoods in areas as diverse as renewable energy, agriculture and national economic planning. In these pages you will read about key champions of climate prediction services, such as the President of Seychelles and the Prime Minister of Samoa, who have been quick to realize the clear value of investing in such services, both to manage risks and to maximize economic opportunities posed by a changing climate.

WMO is also a lead partner in the implementation of the Global Framework for Climate Services, which provides a worldwide mechanism for coordinated actions to enhance the quality, quantity and application of climate services. The Global Framework for Climate Services has been specifically working to empower SIDS to make more informed decisions on climate-sensitive sectors through greater capacity development and direct technical support.
