    Objective:
    Sectors:

    Sixty-one country-level climate data summaries address the climate change information gap for developing countries using existing climate data to generate a series of climate observations and multi-model projections made available through the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP) Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP3). Each country report contains maps and diagrams demonstrating observed and projected climates as country averages as well as changes on a 2.5° grid. A narrative summarises the data in the figures, placing it in the context of the country's general climate.
