The 6th training course on "Climatology, Foundation for Climate Services," a two-week training held annually at the Meteorology School of Météo-France in Toulouse (ENM), took place in February 2017. This year, a French-language session brought together 12 French-speaking countries.
As in past years, as many as thirty speakers from the different directorates of Météo- France, but also from WMO, Universities and Research Centers, and Meteo France International contributed to the success of the event.
A special feature for 2017, supported by a WMO initiative, "Climatology, Foundation for Climate Services" also trained a future trainer. Luc of Madagascar has joined the team of homogenization experts, one of the flagship components of this training.
