High-level Launch of the 2022 State of Climate Services: Energy Report



11 October 2022

11 October 2022  -  15:00 - 16:30 CEST

Energy is at the very heart of our response to 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Paris Agreement on climate change. Given that the energy sector contributes around three-quarters of global greenhouse gas emissions, switching to clean forms of energy generation, such as solar, wind and hydro – and improving energy efficiency – is vital if we are to survive and thrive in the 21st century.

The 2022 State of Climate Services Report, prepared by WMO and 25 partner organizations and initiatives, highlights progress made in climate services for energy globally and identifies where and how governments can invest in effective climate services to strengthen countries' resilience to multiple weather, water, and climate-related hazards.

Bringing together both implementing and funding organizations, the launch event will present the report's findings and lessons learned to help countries, funding agencies and development partners assess which are the steps needed to address gaps in the energy climate services value chain to achieve greater resilience, improve adaptation/mitigation and development outcomes. The event will also highlight examples of how climate services contribute to improved socio-economic outcomes, showcasing real-world climate services examples.
