This is a series of short, practical guidance documents with advice on how to interpret and use seasonal forecasts. Seasonal forecasts are a popular forecast product with the added attractiveness of long lead times.

It is written by people working along different parts of the climate services value chain including - producing seasonal forecasts, interpreting, and disseminating for action – for those who are relatively new to climate services.
