The World Climate Research Programme (WCRP) and the WMO Commission for Climatology (CCl) have adopted a plan to use climate information for emerging social needs relating to adaptation and risk management. At their meeting in Antalya, Turkey (15-19 February 2010), they agreed on a statement that elaborates the implementation plan. The issues being addressed are in line with establishing the Global Framework for Climate Services, decided at World Climate Conference-3. WCRP and CCI have also agreed to establish a joint collaborative mechanism and will seek further partnership with other WMO bodies.
