PRCS Pacific Roadmap for Strengthened Climate ServicesPRSCS: Pacific Roadmap for Strengthened Climate Services

The World Meteorological Organisation’s (WMO) Global Framework for Climate Services (GFCS) provides meteorological guidance to nations across the globe.

The Pacific Roadmap for Strengthened Climate Services (PRSCS) prioritises the key actions identified for implementing the GFCS that are most relevant to the island nation states and territories of the Pacific.  It recognises further the need to expand on the five original GFCS focus areas: agriculture and food security; disaster risk reduction; sustainable energy; health; and water, by adding tourism, fisheries and aquaculture explicitly.

The Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP) has contracted Pacific Science Solutions to draft the PRSCS and we also supported SPREP to facilitate a PRSCS workshop in Nadi on May, 2016.

Among the tasks undertaken by PacSciSol were:

  • The writing of a draft of a Pacific Roadmap for Strengthened Climate Services
  • The development into the roadmap of specific activities for the five GFCS prioritiy areas
  • The consideration of regional priorities for climate services such as the GFCS, the Pacific Islands Climate Services Action Plan; and align with PIMS.
