To improve Climate Information Services (CIS) in the Philippines and members of the Climate Vulnerable Forum (CVF), and help stakeholders make better decisions on climate change.
Climate Information Services are vital in supporting strategic response to climate change.
These services encompass a range of activities that deal with generating and providing information based on past, present, and future climate and on its impacts on natural and human systems.
While the Philippines has made considerable progress in the field of climate information services, ranging from downscaled global climate scenarios for the regional and local level to information about local impacts and vulnerability to climate change, it still varies substantially depending on user needs and the fields of application resulting in a demand for a broad spectrum of knowledge products.
The project will build on the considerable progress of developing countries in addressing various aspects of the climate policy challenge and the highly innovative and successful responses to climate change.
A South- South knowledge sharing platform, and the innovations and experiences gained from the project shall be shared with the Climate Vulnerable Forum member-countries, who have acknowledged the global demand and need for climate information services in contribution to the vision of establishing more resilient communities.
