  • Regarding the outcomes of WCC-3 and Global Framework for Climate Services (GFCS):

    • The PTC emphasized the need for reflecting the roles of the relevant WMO Programmes in the Position Paper, and ensuring a strong role for the Commissions and other bodies guiding these Programmes in supporting the various components of GFCS.

    • The PTC agreed that a set of proposed thematic areas of activity under consideration by CCl-XV would require setting up of intercommission technical groups, including with the steering groups of the co-sponsored programmes such as GCOS and WCRP. It was agreed that the Inter-commission Group on GFCS (ICG-GFCS) would include presidents of each Commission as well as the chairpersons of steering committees of WMO co-sponsored Programmes, on topics relevant to the GFCS.
