SADC Climate Services Centre (CSC) is the specialized SADC Regional Climate Centre and carries its mandate through development, generation and dissemination of meteorological, environmental and hydro-meteorological products. The products make valuable contribution to increasing the region's preparedness to adverse weather and
climate impacts. The CSC also trains SADC Climate Experts from National Meteorological and Hydrological Services (NMHSs) in climate prediction and the user communities in the application of climate products and services for optimum socio-
economic development which is highly sensitive to weather and climate variability
The SADC Secretariat through its Climate Services Centre is convening the Twenty-Seventh Southern Africa Regional Climate Outlook Forum (SARCOF-27), which will be preceded by a Climate Experts Meeting aimed at building capacity of
Climate Experts from Member States. SARCOF-27 is being supported through the European Union (EU) funded Intra-ACP Climate Services and related Application Programme. Both the Climate Experts Meeting and the SARCOF-27 Forum will be held in Mauritius.
