The 18th World Meteorological Congress in June endorsed an ambitious plan to advance the integration of weather, climate, water and environmental applications and services for health (Resolution 33), and work...
WMO places particular emphasis on education and training to improve capacity overall in national meteorological and hydrological services (NMHSs). Its first Leadership and Management Programme for Senior Management, inaugurated in...
The IPCC Special Report on the Ocean and Cryosphere in a Changing Climate spotlights the benefits of ambitious and effective adaptation for sustainable development and, conversely, the escalating costs and...
A new analysis released in July by the Food and Agriculture Organization and more than 100 collaborating scientists projects that by 2050 climate change will have altered the productivity of many of the planet's marine and freshwater fisheries, affecting the livelihoods of millions of the worlds' poorest people.
Dr Antonio Divino Moura of Brazil was nominated for the International Meteorological Organization (IMO) Prize for his outstanding work in meteorology and climatology and scientific research. He will receive the award at a ceremony in 2019.
Farmers in remote rural areas of Peru and the Andean region face climate-induced hazards that threaten their livelihoods. Harvests lost to frost and drought directly translate into food insecurity. Since 2012, the Climandes project (Servicios climáticos para el desarrollo) joins forces to provide accessible and understandable weather and climate information to help exposed populations increase their resilience and thrive despite changing climate conditions.
Since becoming a World Meteorological Centre (WMC) in May 2017, the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) has substantially increased the amount of weather prediction data it makes available free of charge to WMO Members. The additional data enables a more comprehensive view of atmospheric conditions as predicted by ECMWF, including near-surface weather conditions, and will help users make better assessments of weather-related risks out to day 10.
The WMO Commission for Climatology (CCl) recently recommended the establishment of a High Quality Global Data Management Framework for Climate which was endorsed by the WMO Executive Council in June. An ad-hoc group of experts from various disciplines was then formed to develop an approach for endorsing and cataloguing trusted data sets for informing on key climate indicators. The Global Climate Observing System (GCOS) Essential Climate Variables (ECVs) provides a list of key climate variables suitable for this assessment.
