Information on climate helps poor farmers

Providing scientific information about climate and weather patterns particularly in developing countries helps farmers to engage in agriculture and fight desertification.

That’s according to the head of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), Michel Jarraud who is attending a conference on combating desertification in Changwon, South Korea.

WMO is working on a new Global Framework on Climate Services to provide relevant and timely information to all countries and communities around the world.
