OMM, 2013Desde su creación hace 50 años, el Programa de becas de la OMM ha ayudado a un gran número de Servicios Meteorológicos e Hidrológicos Nacionales de los Miembros de la OMM, proporcionándoles expertos que han jugado un papel clave en áreas relacionadas con la meteorología, el clima y los recursos hídricos.PermalinkBoletín, Vol. 61(2). OMM, 2013La innovación y la adaptación no solo han permitido a la humanidad sobrevivir sino también alcanzar nuevas cotas. La innovación condujo al desarrollo de nuevas herramientas y dio lugar a la industrialización, a la informatización y a un sinfín de avances científicos, con consecuencias positivas y negativas.PermalinkTwo fundamental requirements for effective running of the World Weather Watch (WWW) are adequacy of human resources and of physical infrastructure. When the WWW was established in the 1960s, these two requirements formed the most important obstacles for WMO and its partners to deliver an efficient and effective cooperation framework for global weather monitoring. Since the inception of the WWW, WMO has cooperated with diverse partners in order to respond to the human resources needs of developing countries through its Education and Training Programme. Through strategic interventions considerab ...PermalinkBulletin, Vol. 62(1). WMO, 2013Established by WMO’s predecessor, the International Meteorological Organization, the Commission for Instruments and Methods of Observation (CIMO) ensures the accuracy of weather observation by facilitating the creation of international standards and, thus, the compatibility of measurements. The Commission is responsible for developing the guidelines and recommendations implemented through the Instruments and Methods of Observation Programme (IMOP), one of the key components of the World Weather Watch (WWW) Programme. For over a century it has coordinated collective actions by Members in respec ...PermalinkThree jewels shine particularly brightly in the crown of the World Weather Watch: the Global Observing System (GOS), the Global Telecommunication System (GTS) and the Global Data-processing and Forecasting System (GDPFS). As envisaged in the original, visionary plan for the WWW, these individual components deliver their achievements not in isolation but through their connection from end-to-end and through the strong user requirements process that underpins them. The combined achievement is far greater than the sum of the parts, and no single component would be able to deliver the intended bene ...PermalinkProfessor Alan Thorpe is the Director-General of the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) and a founding member of THe Observing system Research and Predictability EXperiment (THORPEX) programme. Under the skillful leadership of the Professor and Dr Mel Shapiro, Co-chairs of the THORPEX International Science Steering Committee, the THORPEX International Science Plan – which lays a foundation for the initiative and provides a 10-year plan for its development – was completed in 2004. THORPEX is a core component of the WMO World Weather Research Programme (WWRP).
PermalinkBulletin, Vol. 62(1). WMO, 2013The 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.PermalinkТрадиционная концепция детерминистических ограничений подвергается сомнению путем рассмотрения возможности определенной успешности прогнозирования во всех временных масштабах от часов доPermalinkВода является природным капиталом растущего населения земного шара.

The meeting followed up on the matter of the Siting Classification for Surface Observing Station on Land that was published in the WMO Guide to Meteorological Instruments and Methods of Observation (WMO-No. 8, CIMO Guide). It agreed on a way to provide clarifications on how to interpret and apply the classification through a question and answer website. It also reviewed the process for further developing this classification as a common WMO-I ...PermalinkThis document provides the Final Report of the 15 th Session of the WMO AMDAR Panel, which, was also the final Meeting of the Panel, having agreed to hand over full programmatic management and governance of the Aircraft-based and AMDAR observing systems to WMO and its Technical Commissions, CBS and CIMO. Most importantly, Members should be aware that this does not mean the end of AMDAR related developmental activities and there remains a strong need to continue supporting the work programme of the WMO Aircraft-based Observations programme. This programme will be managed jointly by a CBS Expert ...PermalinkPermalinkThis series of regional best practice reports presenting best practices in disaster risk reduction (DRR) and climate change adaptation based on the discussions and recommendations of more than 120 experts from around the world involved in the CATALYST Project: Capacity Development for Hazard Risk Reduction and Adaptation".

Successes and ongoing challenges are measured against the global Hyogo Framework for Action’s (HFA’s) priorities for action and indicators and the Pacific’s Regional Disaster Risk Reduction and Disaster Management Framework for Action’s (RFA’s) themes and key activities. Given the strong synergies between disaster risk reduction (DRR) and climate change adaptation (CCA), progress includes capturing relevant climate change (CC) related programs, initia ...PermalinkThe Met.Office, 2013This report examines the relationship between disasters and poverty. It concludes that, without concerted action, there could be up to 325 million extremely poor people living in the 49 countries most exposed to the full range of natural hazards and climate extremes in 2030. It maps out where the poorest people are likely to live and develops a range of scenarios to identify potential patterns of vulnerability to extreme weather and earthquakes – who is going to be vulnerable and why. These scenarios are dynamic: they consider how the threats may change, which countries face the greatest risk ...PermalinkUNEP, 2013This set of research priorities was developed by the Programme of Research on Climate Change Vulnerability, Impacts and Adaptation (PROVIA) in consultation with both experts and policymakers to respond to the demand for better coordination of research. The research priorities include new and emerging topics, the importance of which is now coming into focus, and topics that have long been recognized as important but for which research is still required. They reflect the balance between research supply from experts and research demand from policymakers.

The evidence suggests that climate change could have a negative impact on poverty by 2030. The paper proposes a two-stage least squares regression where it first regresses temperature and rainfall (along with geographic controls and state and year fixed effects) on municipal gross domestic product per capita for 2000 and 2005 The result ...PermalinkThis report presents a brief and interactive summary of the Climate Change in Africa research and capacity program’s chief contributions.
