The WMO Space Programme has four main components:
- Integrated space-based observing system
- Availability and use of satellite data and products
- Information and training
- Space weather coordination
The lead technical responsibility for the Programme is assigned to the Commission for Basic Systems (CBS). The WMO Consultative Meetings on High-level Policy on Satellite Matters (CM) maintains a broad policy overview of the Programme. Space weather activities are jointly overseen by CBS and the Commission for Aeronautical Meteorology (CAeM).
