Notes: The purpose of this Handbook is to assist NMHSs to strengthen their capacity in strategic planning, which would be helpful in attracting investments to improve operational efficiency and effectiveness in delivering high-quality meteorological and hydrological services to citizens all over the world. This document is specifically intended for NMHSs interested in initiating or improving their strategic planning processes. This resource can be used as a capacity strengthening tool to help senior management and staff better understand the why and how to do strategic planning, and then guide the planning team through the process. This Handbook is to be used in conjunction with the WMO Strategic Planning Template that represents a basic strategic plan model which can be easily completed by an NMHS.

It is the goal of the Global Atmosphere Watch (GAW) programme to ensure long - term measurements in order to detect trends in global distributions of chemical constituents in air and the reasons for them (WMO, 2001a). With respect to aerosols, the objective of GAW is to determine the spatio - temporal distribution of aerosol properties related to climate forcing and air quality on multi - decadal time scales and on regional, hemispheric and global spatial scales. The objective of GAW Report No. 153, published in 2003, was to provide a synthesis of methodologies and procedures for measuring the recommended aerosol variables within the GAW network. The report has been extensively used by the scientific community, and more particularly by scientists and engineers involved with data production from ground - based sites. The knowledge of aerosol impact on climate and air quality as well as the techniques used for the determination of the essential aerosol variables to be monitored at ground - based sites have considerably evolved in the last decade, justifying an update of GAW Report No. 153. This update has been prepared shortly after the release of the Working Group 1 report from the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC, 2013). A clear emphasis was given for the first time in IPCC reports since 1992 to the analyses of evidence of climate change from observations of the atmosphere highlighting the challenges for d eveloping long - term, high quality observation record that can be used to constrain models at global and regional scales. While the benefit of improved monitoring capabilities developed in the last decades, both from satellites and ground - based has been cl early assessed for the production of more reliable data records, the report still highlights the need for maintaining and enhancing the capacity of the observing system to provide the additional constrains, in particular for the derivation of trends.

These concepts and indicators/indices are outlined below in what is considered to be a living document that will evolve and integrate new indicators and indices as they come to light and are applied in the future. The handbook is aimed at those who want to generate indicators and indi ...English, French; Spanish; Russian; Chinese; ArabicPermalink
GAW Report, 226. Coupled Chemistry-Meteorology/ Climate Modelling (CCMM): status and relevance for numerical weather prediction, atmospheric pollution and climate researchOnline coupled meteorology atmospheric chemistry models have undergone a rapid evolution in recent years. Although mainly developed by the air quality modelling community, these models are also of interest for numerical weather prediction and climate modelling as they can consider not only the effects of meteorology on air quality, but also the potentially important effects of atmospheric composition on weather. This report provides the main conclusions from the Symposium on “Coupled Chemistry-Meteorology/Climate Modelling: Status and Relevance for Numerical Weather Prediction, Air Quality and ...EnglishPermalinkWorld Meteorological Organization (WMO) ; Global Framework for Climate Services (GFCS) - WMO, 2016 (WMO, 1170)Because of the current and projected impacts on climate due to the high levels of greenhousegas (GHG) emissions, adaptation is a necessary strategy at all scales in a changing climate. At its 17th session, the Conference of Parties (COP) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) established the National Adaptation Plan (NAP) process as a way to facilitate effective adaptation planning in Least Developed Countries (LDCs) and other developing countries. The four key elements that need to be undertaken in the development of NAPs are: Laying the groundwork and addressin ...EnglishPermalinkThis is the first edition of the Manual on the WMO Integrated Global Observing System (WMO-No. 1160), developed following the decision of the Sixteenth World Meteorological Congress to proceed with the implementation of that System (WIGOS).

Modern records for heat were broken: 2015 was a record warm year both globally and in many individual countries. Heatwaves were extremely intense in various part of the world, leading to thousands of deaths in India and Pakistan. Record extreme precipitation led to flooding that affected tens of thousands of people across South America, West Africa and Europe. Dry conditions in southern Africa and Brazil exacerbated multi-year droughts. The influence of the strong El Niño that developed in the later part ...English, Arabic; Chinese; French; Russian; SpanishPermalinkThis Strategic Plan for 2016–2019 reflects the decisions and directions of the Seventeenth World Meteorological Congress, held in Geneva from 25 May to 12 June 2015. It sets the directions and priorities to guide the activities of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) to enable all Members to improve their information, products and services. It anticipates increased demand for high-quality weather, hydrological and climate services to enhance community resilience, contribute to economic growth and protect life and property from extreme weather, climate and water events.English, Arabic; Chinese; French; Russian; SpanishPermalink
