CATCOS Phase 2
High-quality and long-term climate data are an essential basis for the assessment of climate change. Upon completion of CATCOS Phase 1, it was vital to continue supporting developing and emerging countries in the establishment and sustainable continuation of climate observations. To this end, CATCOS Phase 2 aimed at enhancing climate monitoring capacities in ten partner countries. CATCOS Phase 2 supported regional cooperation as it bears the potential to optimize the use and benefit of climate observations. Additionally, the incorporation of science-based climate information into the decision-making process was promoted within CATCOS Phase 2, as it enables better management of risks emerging from climate variability and change.
