CST and projects

WMO supports the implementation of the Climate Services Toolkit through different projects:


The ClimSA programme - Intra-ACP Climate Services and Related Application (ClimSA) - is a joint initiative of the Organization of the African, Caribbean and Pacific Group of States funded by the European Union.

ClimSA aims to strengthen the climate services value chain by improving the production, access to and use of climate information, services and applications for decision-makers in five priority sectors (agriculture and food security, health, water, disaster risk reduction and energy). One of the top activities of ClimSA is to strengthen the Climate Services Information System (CSIS).

WMO works with partners to customize and deploy the CST for ClimSA Regional Climate Centres (RCCs)/regional partners and associated focus countries. The implementation of CST across ClimSA regions and focus countries will help improve decision-making, better climate risk management and improved resilience.

The CREWS initiative - Risk and Early Warning Systems (CREWS) - is a financing mechanism that aims to increase access to early warnings and risk information in Least Developed Countries (LDCs) and Small Island Developing States (SIDSs).

One of the components of CREWS is the development of a CST tailored to the operational needs and requirements of National Meteorological and Hydrological Services (NMHSs) in Malawi and three countries in the Horn of Africa (Ethiopia, Somalia and Sudan). The CST will provide technical tools to enable NMHSs to extract, visualize and analyze climate data.
