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.

The World Weather Watch (WWW) is one of the crowning achievements of WMO. The celerity with which WMO responded to the introduction of meteorological satellites with the establishment of the WWW, and its subsequent adoption by all WMO Members, set a standard for international cooperation in operational programmes that remains unequalled today.

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. If that is the case, they wonder why bother so much about CO 2 and other greenhouse gases? Observations by the WMO Global Atmosphere Watch programme have helped to investigate this in some detail.
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.
