Developing climate services and increasing the number of professionals and students trained in meteorology and climatology in Peru

In developing and emerging countries, climate data are often of poor quality and do not meet the prerequisites for the provision of climate services for political decision-makers. In Peru and the Andean region, the importance of user-tailored climate services is recognized, but this requires better quality climate observations and more expert meteorologists and climatologists. In order to address this need, the Global Framework for Climate Services (GFCS) established the project CLIMANDES (Servicios climáticos con énfasis en los Andes en apoyo a las decisiones) between Peru and Switzerland in 2012. The aim of the project is to increase the number of professionals and students trained in meteorology and climatology in support of the WMO Regional Training Centre (RTC) and to develop climate services for the regions of Cusco and Junin.
