Non-governmental organisations (NGOs) are playing an increasingly prominent role in delivering climate and weather information services to communities in developing countries. Drawing on three BRACED projects, this paper highlights some of the challenges associated with supporting communities in this way, and the implications for public sector climate service provision more broadly.
