Report of the World Climate Conference-3 - Better climate information for a better future
Working together towards a Global Framework for Climate Services
World Climate Conference-3 (WCC-3), Better climate information for a better future (31 August–4 September 2009)
Peoples around the world are facing multi-faceted challenges of climate variability and climate change, challenges that require wise and well-informed decision-making at every level, from households and communities to countries and regions. World Climate Conference-3 (WCC-3), held in Geneva from 31 August to 4 September 2009, considered these challenges and guided the development of an international framework for climate services that will link science-based climate prediction and information with the management of climate-related risks and opportunities in support of adaptation to climate variability and change in both developed and developing countries.
