Step-by-step Guidelines for Establishing a National Framework for Climate Services

This publication is intended to assist National Meteorological and Hydrological Services and their partner institutions at a national level, engaged under the five pillars of the Global Framework for Climate Services, to establish a National Framework for Climate Services. Such a national framework aims to coordinate institutions and enable them to work together to co-design, co-produce, communicate, deliver and use climate services for decision-making in climate-sensitive socioeconomic sectors. National Meteorological and Hydrological Services and other national institutions can use these guidelines in their entirety, adapt them to unique circumstances in their countries or use only the parts that they find useful.

Africa Partner Coordination Mechanism

The Africa Development Partner Coordination Mechanism (APCM) for Weather, Water and Climate Services provides a platform for the systematic exchange of project and programme information to enhance collaboration among development partners and harmonize interventions at the regional and national levels.
