Scientists have been observing changes in the climate that cannot be attributed solely to natural influences. These changes are occurring rapidly, are significant, and will have consequences for this and future generations. Changes in climate variability and extremes driven by human-induced climate change are some of the key challenges facing humanity.
WMO supports UNFCCC through a wide range of scientific and technical inputs, including its support through the IPCC, thereby contributing to adaptation, mitigation and capacity development. Every year, WMO participates in sessions of the Conference of Parties (COP) of UNFCCC, providing the latest scientific advice and information to governments, including the Statement on the State of the Global Climate and the Greenhouse Gas Bulletin.

Recent developments in the climate change arena, including the Paris Agreement in 2015 and the publication of the IPCC Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5 °C, have noted the potential need for negative emission technologies to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere in order to limit temperature increase.

As the recognition of the dependence between climate change and variability and human welfare grows, climate action continues gaining importance on the global development agenda
All life depends on a healthy planet, but the interwoven systems of atmosphere, oceans, watercourses, land, ice cover and biosphere, which form the natural environment, are threatened by human activities. The Global Atmosphere Watch (GAW) programme provides reliable scientific data and information on aerosols, greenhouse gases, selected reactive gases, ozone, ultraviolet radiation and precipitation chemistry (or atmospheric deposition).
Coordinating the activities of Members related to the space-based observing system component of the WMO Integrated Global Observing System to ensure sustained and interoperable satellite observations and to promote their applications.

Regional Climate Outlook Forums (RCOFs) produce consensus-based, user-relevant climate outlook products in real time through regional cooperation and partnership in order to reduce climate-related risks and support sustainable development for the coming season in sectors of critical socioeconomic significance for the region in question.
Setting technical standards, quality control procedures and guidance for the use of meteorological instruments and observation methods in order to promote development documentation and worldwide standardization.
