Through its Technical Commission, Programmes and Regional Offices as well as by synergistic partnerships, WMO facilitates the maintenance and expansion of its Members' atmospheric, oceanographic and land-based observational networks; the free unrestricted exchange of the resulting data and information; and related capacity development and research in order to optimize the production weather, climate and water-related services worldwide.
Within its mandate in the areas of weather, climate and water, WMO focuses on many different aspects and issues from observations, information exchange and research to weather forecasts and early warnings, from capacity development and monitoring of greenhouse gases to application services and much, much more.

Those who question the importance of climate change sometimes claim that reducing carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) emissions into the atmosphere will have a very limited effect, because water vapour is the most dominant greenhouse gas.

At 05:16 UTC on 7 October 2014, the Japanese satellite Himawari-8 atop an H-IIA rocket took off from the Yoshinobu Launch Complex Pad 1 at the Tanegashima Space Centre in Japan. The launch was flawless and the satellite arrived a few weeks later at its final geostationary orbiting position 36 000 km above the equator at 140.5°E, just north of Papua New Guinea in the Western Pacific Ocean. It was the first of a new generation of satellites that would start operations in the 2015-2021 timeframe. These new meteorological satellites have enhanced observation capability that will bring benefits,...

At international, national and local levels, there is a drive to improve access for women to technology, information, science education and technical training and to strengthen the position of women scientists and technologists. Ensuring that women have equal access to science education and technology is an essential catalyst to ensure that the developers and users of weather, water and climate services provided by WMO and its Members serve the global community – men, women, boys, girls.
