Heads of government and ministers from all around the world voiced strong support for the proposed Global Framework for Climate Services (GFCS) which is intended to make climate information available, accessible and relevant, especially to those who need it most in developing countries. They also discussed other WMO major priority areas including capacity building, disaster risk reduction, strengthened information and observation systems, and aeronautical meteorology.
