The Climate, Water, and Carbon Program at OSU. Climate information. Climate. Climate is a natural resource vital to our well-being, health and prosperity. The information gathered, managed and analysed under the coordination of WMO by the NMHSs, in collaboration with other regional and international organizations and programmes, helps decision-makers and users plan and adapt their activities and projects to expected conditions. In this way, decisions may be taken in planning which reduce risks and optimize socio-economic benefits.
