The  SBSTA  noted  with  appreciation  the  information  provided  by  WMO  on  the developments regarding the implementation of the Global Framework for Climate Services (GFCS) and the outcome of the second session of the Intergovernmental Board on Climate Services.
The  SBSTA  noted  that  GFCS  has  moved  into  an  implementation  phase  and encouraged Parties to make use of the opportunities that GFCS provides to help to address climate   variability   and   change   at   the   national   level,   including   to   enhance   climate observations  and  monitoring,  and  to  support  the  formulation  and  implementation  of national adaptation planning processes, as appropriate. The SBSTA invited WMO to report, by SBSTA 43, on progress made on the implementation of GFCS.

The SBSTA recalled the conclusions from SBSTA 39 and welcomed the plans of the GCOS secretariat to organize, in collaboration with the IPCC and the secretariat, a workshop to identify ways to enhance systematic observation and related capacity, especially in developing countries to support preparedness and adaptation in a changing climate proposed to be held in February 2015 in Bonn, Germany. It invited the GCOS secretariat to provide a report on the workshop by SBSTA 43

The SBSTA welcomed the plan of the GCOS Steering Committee and secretariat to prepare, in broad consultation with relevant partners, by early 2015, a third report on the adequacy of the global observing systems for climate and, by 2016, a new implementation plan for the global observing system for climate, which would, inter alia, support the Convention. The SBSTA invited the GCOS secretariat to provide the third adequacy report to the SBSTA in 2015 by its forty-third session, and the final implementation plan to the SBSTA in 2016 by its forty-fifth session. The SBSTA encouraged the GCOS secretariat to provide a draft of the new implementation plan to the SBSTA by its forty-third session in 2015.
