It facilitated the identification of appropriate mechanisms and networks to improve and sustain the flow of climate information for different users. Specifically, it resulted in: (i) enhanced understanding of the needs for climate services in different user sectors; (ii) clear understanding of capacity development needs to implement the GFCS at regional and national levels; (iii) proposal of climate information distribution chains for Latin America; (iv) strategic guidance on institutional arrangements, partnerships and processes required to operationalize the GFCS at the regional and national level; (v)   Regional action Plan for Implementation of Climate Services in Latin America.
