During the exchange, the experts presented the National Framework for Climate Services (NFCS) and the status of climate services in Thailand, China, Vietnam, and Germany. The NFCS serves as a critical decision-making tool for national policymakers in terms of climate adaptation and disaster mitigation.


The purpose of this exchange was to initiate joint efforts towards promoting climate-friendly and resilient cities in partner countries, taking into account the contributions of climate services. This exchange marked the first-ever collaboration between GIZ and NCC-CMA on climate services. The Urban-Act project has laid a good foundation for close cooperation with NCC-CMA in the future.
