In the last years, the climate has been a central issue in several research areas. The Climate Issue is now part of our everyday life, due also to the urgency of actions across society climate change requires.
The awareness of the consequences of climate change including the economic and social impacts are undoubtedly growing. The economic impact is high and it could be reduced adopting a proactive approach, as it is better to prepare than to react to such events. In 2009, the World Climate Conference-3 unanimously decided to establish a Global Framework for Climate Services (GFCS), a UN-led initiative spearheaded by WMO to guide the development and application of science-based climate information and services in support of decision-making in climate-sensitive sectors. Thirteen heads of state or government, 81 ministers and 2 500 scientists unanimously agreed to develop the GFCS. From this perspective, the WMO (World Meteorological Organization) urges for the implementation of Climate Services that respond specifically to different needs, and provide climate information in a way that assists decision making by individuals and organizations.
The purpose of CLIMATESERVICE.IT is to provide services and solutions to give scientific answers to the information needs of different types of users.
