It outlined the objectives of the Mission as networking existing knowledge institutions for exchange and sharing of data, building institutional and human capacities and improving the understanding of key climate processes and climate risks.

The mission serviced by the Science and Technology Ministry will seek to build synergy with the NATCOM process of the Ministry of Environment and Forests.
