GFCS at Events
Side event at the 2013 World Water Week
Together with UNESCO and GWP, WMO organized a side event on â€˜Stakeholders' Contribution to Drought and Flood Managementâ€™. The main focus here was to advocate for the newly launched Integrated Drought Management Programme. Bringing together different stakeholders with a multi- disciplinary approach, Integrated Flood Management and Integrated Drought Management are highly dependent on access to high quality climate services. GFCS fosters dialogue between climate and water communities to improve accessibility and understanding of climate services in support of water resources management. To succeed in this task, different agencies at the international and national levels were invited to increase their cooperative efforts.
