Climate information for development needs
An action plan for Africa - Report and implementation strategy
Climate information for development needs, an action plan for Africa (18-21 April 2006)
"The purpose of the meeting was to bring together a wide cross-section of the users and providers of climate information to identify the gaps and needs for climate observations and services to support efforts to achieve the MDGs. Participants considered several documents: a Gap Analysis, prepared from a user perspective, that assessed needed improvements in the provision of climate information and services to sectoral users and decisionmakers leading to better management of climate risks
and two Regional Action Plans prepared over the period 2001-04 (one for the countries of Eastern and Southern Africa, the other for countries of Western and Central Africa) which identify priority initiatives for observing system and related data management improvements."
