The Global Framework for Climate Services (GFCS) is a joint endeavour of the UN system to support efforts to address climate change by strengthening climate knowledge and its applications across all sectors and disciplines.

It ensures that decision makers have access to the highest quality climate predictions and services offered by an array of organizations, countries and institutions. The GFCS is an integrating set of international arrangements built upon existing global climate observation and research programmes as well as operational structures into an end-to-end product generation, service provision and application system.
