Atmospheric processes exert a strong influence on a range of human activities, ecosystem services and hence human development. Accordingly, there is now a demand from a variety of sectors for weather and climate information. In many ways this has led to the emergence of climate risk management (CRM) as a distinct field of pure and applied research. A clear manifestation of the global recognition of the potential significance of climate information for risk management is the establishment of the World Meteorological Organization’s Global Framework for Climate Services (GFCS).

Theoretically through developing and incorporating science-based weather and climate information and prediction into planning, policy and practice, better management of the risks and opportunities arising from climate variability and change will be enabled. However the question remains “what type of weather and climate information and for whom”.
