On 23 March 2010, the National Meteorological and Hydrological Services all over the world commemorate the Convention establishing World Meteorological Organization 60 years ago. This year’s theme is: “WMO – 60 years of service for your safety and well-being.” A special booklet to mark this occasion recalls historic achievements by the organization and illustrates sixty ways how WMO makes the difference in our daily lives. At a ceremony at the WMO premises, Dr Osvaldo F. Canziani, who has been closely associated with the work of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, will be the Guest Speaker. Professor Walter R. Stahel, a prominent authority in Insurance Economics and Risk Management associated with Climate Change, will also address the audience as a special guest. The contemporary artist Remi Benyamin will display some of his paintings inspired by satellite images.
