The WMO Global Campus is a collaborative network of institutions and National Meteorological Hydrological Services involved in the development and delivery of education and training in meteorology, climatology, hydrology and other related sciences. It is built on the synergies, sharing and cooperation between these institutions and will address global priorities and the growing and changing requirements and needs for learning in the community.
In 2020, the ACREI project will, through activities conducted by Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations (FAO), focus on linking the climate information generated, to participatory planning processes, Farmer Field Schools (FFS) and community adaptation investments. Sixty FFS in the project region will be supplied with rain gauges to encourage local monitoring of weather and climate information, while an FFS manual on climate change adaptation practice is currently being developed. The Participatory Integrated Climate Services for Agriculture (PICSA) approach will be...
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.
The objective of the procurement activities within the WMO is to achieve best value for money for the acquisition of goods and services in a manner that supports fairness, integrity and transparency, and is directed towards maximum economy and effectiveness within, and in accordance with, the objectives of the Organization.
Further development of WMO initiatives, such as WHOS, HydroSOS and the Global Cryosphere Watch, matched with other international efforts, should support a fully operational World Water Data Initiative and enable...
WMO supports resolving the equation of water demand for human consumption, irrigation requirements, water availability and potential water storage and provides advice to optimize rainfed and irrigated agriculture. The water-energy-food...
Operational hydrology would benefit from an improved understanding of the impacts of various stressors on the hydrological cycle, in support of closing the water balance.
Risk assessment, proper planning and mitigation are the cornerstones of any National Meteorological and Hydrological Service (NMHS) measure to reduce flood risks. Timely forecasts and warnings must be produced at the regional, national and local levels and be communicated through the appropriate authorities in language that they understand.
