Major impediments indeed still exist having efficient climate services at regional and local leave, because of little or poorly understood climate processes (in part caused by a paucity of observations, inadequate dissemination of scientific knowledge, conflicts between climatic and non-climatic stressors and lack of action by decision makers and the human society at large.
