Publication: Making Society Climate Resilient: International Progress under the GFCS
There is growing awareness around the world among governments, businesses and the general public of risks arising from changes to our climate. Some climatic changes could be unprecedented in their harmful socioeconomic impacts, while others, with sufficient forewarning and planning, could offer benefits. To help manage potential impacts, decision-makers need to have access to, and use, high-quality, timely, relevant, up-to-date, and credible climate information about the past, present, and future. Such climate information includes data, knowledge, and sectoral information on impacts and risks. We refer to the provision and use of such information as climate services.
