WMO Statement on the State of the Global Climate

WMO Statement on the State of the Global Climate

Every year, WMO issues a Statement on the State of the Global Climate based on data provided by National Meteorological and Hydrological Services (NMHSs) and other national and international organizations.

For more than 20 years, these reports have been published in the six official languages of the United Nations to inform governments, international agencies, other WMO partners and the general public about the global climate and significant weather and climate trends and events at the global and regional levels.

The Provisional Statement on the State of the Global Climate in 2018 was completed and communicated at a press conference held at the United Nations Palais des Nations on 29 November in Geneva. Key findings were also presented at several high level and side events at the 24th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP24).
