Regional Offices

Regional Offices coordinate with the various departments at WMO headquarters that work in the area of Capacity Development to implement resource mobilization, partnership building and advocacy-related activities in their region. 

They are responsible, together with WMO scientific and technical departments and partners, for the implementation of regional technical cooperation and activities in support of countries in transition and developing and least developed countries, including small island developing states and territories. This includes support to the regional associations, development and implementation of technical cooperation projects and programmes in support of National Meteorological and Hydrological Services, liaison within regional institutions and organizations and resource mobilization.
