New working arrangement between the European Commission and WMO

A new working arrangement has been put in place between the European Commission and WMO to highlight priority areas of cooperation in operational and research fields related to the atmospheric environment, weather, climate, hydrology and water resources. Both organizations are committed to working together to address regional and worldwide environmental and societal emergencies such as climate change, sea-level changes, natural disasters, stratospheric ozone depletion, atmospheric and water pollution, marine environment pollution, water scarcity, freshwater availability, land degradation and desertification, and loss of biodiversity.

On 16 June, the Commission published the new working arrangement in the Official Journal of the European Union. A signing ceremony is planned for early September.
