It is recognized that there is a need to better utilize and improve the monitoring of weather and climate extremes from space. Stakeholders to pursue this objective include satellite operators, WMO Regional Climate Centres (RCCs), National Meteorological and Hydrological Services (NMHSs) and other relevant institutes. The pivotal role to be played by WMO was the reason to give visibility of the Space-based Weather and Climate Extremes Monitoring (SWCEM) to WMO members by the Resolution 6.1(5)/4 from the Eighteenth World Meteorological Congress (Cg-18) in June 2019.
A foremost objective in implementing the WMO PPE is to ensure that all stakeholders of the weather, climate and water enterprise are involved in and contribute to high-quality information and services. To this end, the following elements are identified as the key implementing mechanisms.
Over the last years, WMO, in cooperation with various partners, has been developing a new approach for greater engagement between the public, private and academic sectors operating in the global weather enterprise. In 2018 and 2019 – at the 70 th Session of its Executive Council and the 18 th Session of the World Meteorological Congress – WMO refined guidance and policies to encourage and enable Members to pursue mutually beneficial partnerships and engagement with all sectors and stakeholders in order to enhance weather, climate and water services for business, individuals and society as a...
Introduction: The upcoming OCP Innovation Seminar will bring together the executive and technical leaders of Tomorrow.io, the WMO, and CGMS experts for a robust discussion on the emerging needs, recent...
The Earth system is undergoing changes, with profound effects on the life it sustains. Subsequently the global agenda – the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals, the Paris Agreement on climate change, and the Sendai Framework for disaster risk reduction – reflects a strong focus on both immediate and long-term risks related to extreme weather, climate and water. The weight of responsibility is on the global meteorological, climatological and hydrological communities to embrace new ways of partnership and collaboration for a rapid advancement of science and service capabilities as a response to...

The El Niño/Southern Oscillation has a major influence on climate patterns in various parts of the world. This naturally occurring phenomenon involves fluctuating ocean temperatures in the central and eastern equatorial Pacific, coupled with changes in the atmosphere. Scientific progress on the understanding and modelling of this phenomenon has improved prediction skills to within a range of one to nine months in advance, giving society the opportunity to prepare for associated hazards such as heavy rains, floods and drought.
“We venture by the present circular to invite the heads of Meteorological Institutes, the Meteorological and other Learned Societies, as well as private scientific men and practical observers in the domain of Meteorology, to this consultative meeting, which is to be held in Leipzig …” (From the invitation letter to the Meteorological Conference at Leipzig, August 1872)
