2019 State of Climate Services: Agriculture and Food Security

Author: WMO
The report provides case studies, examples and explanations as to the role of climate information and services to support agriculture in the face of climate variability and change, assesses gaps and makes recommendations.

This report helps highlight both challenges and opportunities for climate service efforts aimed at promoting climate resilient development and adaptation action. WFP has shared lessons learnt and best practices on its work on climate and food security analyses (to inform national climate plans and projects), on forecast-based financing (to act before a climate-related disaster materialize) and on climate information services (to provide communities with climate and weather information to make informed decision on their crops and livelihoods).
