UNISDR at World Climate Conference 3 (WCC-3)

 

Geneva International Conference Center, Switzerland, 31 August - 4 September 2009

WCC-3 focuses on how humankind can benefit from the advances in climate prediction and information services to manage climate-related risks as a way of developing resilience through adaptation. Disaster Risk Reduction is a key component of the agenda and UNISDR is directly involved in a variety of events, such as the Opening of the Conference and Plenary Session 4 on Climate Extremes, Warning Systems and Disaster Risk Reduction.

 

Bringing together more than 2 000 climate scientists, sectoral experts and decision-makers, WCC-3  established on 3 September a Global Framework for Climate Services “to strengthen production, availability, delivery and application of science-based climate prediction and services.”
