The new 2016 GCOS Implementation plan "The Global Observing System for Climate: Implementation Needs" will be open for public review from 25 July to 5 September 2016.
This plan aims to guide climate observations over the next ten years, meeting the needs of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, adaptation planning and climate science. Following approval by the Global Climate Observing System steering committee, a final version will be submitted to the UNFCCC for the Conference of the Parties to be held in Marrakech, Morrocco, in November 2016.
Anyone interested in climate observations is invited to comment on this draft.
The review draft and instructions on how to submit comments can be found at gcos.wmo.int
