The ClimSA Programme at a glance

In a warming world, the need of climate science-based information for policy, planning and practice decisions, at all levels and scales is now more urgent than ever. In partnership with the European Union (EU), the Organisation of African, Caribbean and Pacific States (OACPS) has initiated the Intra-ACP Climate Services and Related Application Programme (ClimSA), under the 11th European Development Fund (EDF).
ClimSA’s objectives are to provide members and regions of the OACPS innovative and collaborative solutions to manage climate-related risk considerations in their sustainable development policy, planning and practice decisions, by (i) Contributing to strengthening the production, availability, delivery and application of science-based information; and (ii) Building the capacity of decision-makers at all levels.
In the context of the 2030 Agenda for sustainable development and the Paris Agreement, providing science-based information with reliable data on climate change and climate variability is critical for the 79 members and six regions of the OACPS to meet their commitments.

Testimonials

CLIMSA will become increasingly important and instrumental in supporting the Members and Regions of the OACPS in our efforts to build Climate resilience and pursue sustainable development.
HE Mr Georges

We are confident that the New ClimSA programme will strenghten all the components of the climate services value chain, making and extra effort to reach the last mile with innovative solutions.
Ms Carla MONTESI

In the ACP regions, ground-based weather and climate observation network are hot as dense as it should be. Satellite data are therefore a precious source of information and can greatly facilitate the delivery of Weather, Hydrological and Climate services in support to regional and national needs.
