WMO is part of two multi-disciplinary consortia for research projects to increase coastal resilience : Preparing for Extreme And Rare Events in Coastal Regions (PEARL) , and Resilience-Increasing Strategies for Coasts – toolKIT (RISK-KIT).
The WMO Conference on the Gender Dimensions of Weather and Climate Services, held in Geneva from 5 to 7 November, formulated desired steps to provide equal access to weather and climate services to women and men in order to help them make better decisions in the areas of food security, disaster risk reduction, water resources management and public health.

WMO and the International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) – which supports the continuing education and career development of scientists from developing countries to conduct research in various domains at the highest standards – signed a Memorandum of Understanding at a conference, marking the Centre’s 50th anniversary, in Trieste, Italy, on 6 and 7 October.
The report entitled “ Explaining Extreme Events of 2013 from a Climate Perspective ” addresses the causes of 16 individual events that occurred on four continents in 2013.
