Weather and climate services for Africa, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) countries
by World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and European Organisation for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites (EUMETSAT) (United Nations entity)
The main goal is to optimize the use of the available Hydro-Meteorological infrastructure and knowledge to support decision making to contribute to climate adaptation and mitigation policies in African, Caribbean and Pacific Group of States (ACP countries). The general objective will foster sustainable development in ACP countries by improving the decision-making process through informed adaptation options to climate variability and change.

The specific objective will support the climate information services value chain with technical assistance, financial assistance, infrastructure and capacity building to improve wide access and use of climate information, and to enable and encourage the creation and use of climate services and applications for decision making processes at all levels. It will strengthen the tools to bridge climate services stakeholders and users in various priority sectors to resource and implement the Global Framework for Climate Services (GFCS) at all levels.
