World Meteorological Day celebrates "Climate For You"



23 March 2011

Climate for You is the theme of this years World Meteorological Day (23 March) celebrating the contribution of National Meteorological and Hydrological Services to every aspect of our daily lives.

WMO activities in the area of climate are widely perceived today as key contributions to human safety and well-being and the realization of economic benefits for all nations, said WMO Secretary-General Michel Jarraud.

Reliable and timely climate information will increasingly be required by decision-makers and by all socio-economic sectors, particularly at the regional and local levels, in view of the grave risks associated with a rapidly changing climate, said Mr Jarraud.
