Climate information services, consisting of generation, packaging and delivery of weather and climate data and its subsequent uptake, are critical to support climate adaptation and resilient development. Such information can describe historical, current and future weather and climate conditions and can provide future predictions on daily, monthly, seasonal or decadal timescales and projections at multi-decadal and centennial scales. The African Climate Policy Center (ACPC), through the Weather Information and Climate Services (WISER) project, funded by the Pan-African component of the department for international development, reviewed the application of WMO resolution 40 in the African context to support climate information services development for sustainable climate change adaptation and resilient development on the continent. The climate information services also takes into consideration their impact on natural and human systems. The overall objective of the expert group meeting is to review a document on the application of hydro-meteorological, including climate data sharing standards and procedures in Africa, based on WMO resolution 40, to facilitate climate information services production, uptake and use on the continent.
