New online: Reaching users with climate services

New online: Reaching users with climate services



1 June 2011

Reaching users with climate services is the theme of the latest issue of the WMO Bulletin, now available online.

The edition features an article calling for stronger communication about science by the New York Times Dot.Earth blog columnist, Andy Revkin, whose latest blog entry covers the same topic. Readers will also find a photo essay on global warming; relevant trends in reinsurance, health and education; and interviews on a variety of topics.

The articles explore three areas: why we need to get climate information to vulnerable communities; perspectives from the health and financial services sectors; and cases for effective outreach through online media, education campaigns, photography and volunteers.

The issue is a contribution to the discussions on the Global Framework for Climate Services, which are underway during WMO 16th Congress (16 May-3 June).

The next issue will also feature user needs from various sectors as well as outreach practices. Please contact the WMO Bulletin if you have valuable cases to share with readers.
