Strengthen Climate and Weather Information Services
Task 3 focuses on the collection, packaging, and dissemination of climate and weather information (CWI) services. Better climate and weather information systems are fundamental to fostering place-based resilience across the archipelago, saving lives in the near term (i.e. disaster risk reduction) while supporting better planning and public investment in the medium to long term (i.e. climate change adaptation). Critically, improved information is not an end in and of itself, but must be linked to institutional capacity building (Task 1 and Task 2), pro-poor programming for sustainable livelihoods (Task 2 and Task 4), and trans-boundary ecosystem management (Task 2).
