Sustainable development: perspective of the World Meteorological Organization

This position paper outlines how, through The Global Framework for Climate Services, products and services, experts from various disciplines and regions will work together to develop science-based climate and environmental information tailored to end-users’ needs. It is intended to contribute to adaptation to climate variability and change and disaster risk management as an integral part of overall United Nations system-wide efforts to make science accessible and relevant for decision-making at all levels, as a contribution to the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20).
