Evidence Review: Options Analysis For A Regional Climate Change Programme To Deliver More Effective Climate Services, Early Warning And Disaster Risk Reduction

This report provides a literature review of the current state of climate services in South Asia, user needs, and current and future capacity to produce and deliver timely, accurate and relevant climate information and services. The evidence review focuses on climate services in the five sectors that align with the priority areas identified under the Global Framework for Climate Services (GFCS 2015). Primarily, food security and agriculture, water and disaster risk reduction, followed to a lesser extent by energy and health. Supplementary evidence was gathered during telephone and email consultations with DFID regional and country teams, users of climate information, climate service providers, academic institutions, government departments and ministries, private sector entities, NGOs, UN agencies, development banks, bilateral and multilateral organisations, regional and inter-governmental agencies and others. Based on an assessment of major gaps and opportunities, the report sets out a preliminary prioritisation of intervention options for the proposed regional programme.
