Meteoworld : April 2020
The overall health and performance of WMO coordinated Global Observing System is under continued monitoring during the current COVID-19 outbreak. Large parts of the system, for instance its satellite components and many ground-based observing networks, are either partly or fully automated, and are therefore expected to continue functioning without significant degradation for several weeks, and in some cases even longer.
WMO hosted the first Symposium and User Summit of the Integrated Global Greenhouse Gas Information System (IG3IS), one of the recent initiatives of the WMO Global Atmosphere Watch (GAW) Programme, from 13 to 15 November in Geneva.
WMO has joined the global commitment to reduce deaths due to air pollution by two thirds by 2030. At the First World Health Organization (WHO) Global Conference on Air Pollution and Health, held in Geneva from 30 October to 1 November, WMO pledged to improve the quality and availability of pollution observations, enable provision of air quality forecasts and advisory services, and incorporate health impacts in key scientific assessments on climate and climate change.
