Established in 1950, WMO recognizes the need to continuously adapt to a rapidly changing world. The need for regular reform is being driven by environmental degradation, resource constraints, increased competition, technological advances, and other forces. The goal for WMO is to remain fit-for-purpose and to become more and more nimble and cost-effective.
Executive Council recommends that the president and the vice-presidents of each new commission and the new Research Board be elected by Congress from amongst current presidents and vice-presidents of technical commissions as a one-time measure aimed at expediting the transition to the new structure.
World Meteorological Congress is the supreme body of WMO. The Executive Council (picture from 68th session 2017) implement its decisions, while six Regional Associations are responsible for the coordination of meteorological, hydrological and related activities within their respective Regions. In addition, eight Technical Commissions establish methodologies and procedures and make recommendations to the Executive Council and the Congress.
