State of Climate Services: Water

11 October, 2021

The 2021 State of Climate Services: Water report was launched last week by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO). The high-level online event was attended by representatives of major organizations and government departments focused on climate and water.

The WMO, through its Global Framework for Climate Services (GFCS), reports each year on the state of climate services with a view to “facilitating the development and application of methodologies for assessing adaptation needs”.

In this report focused on water, the authors explore how by improving water resource management we can reduce the impacts associated with water-related disasters. This publication marks a significant contribution to the ongoing efforts to integrate action across the water and climate sectors.
