Since November 1985, WMO has organized a series of quadrennial International Workshops on Tropical Cyclones (IWTCs), the latest of which took place in La Reunion (France) from 10 to 15 November 2010. It is noteworthy that this seventh WMO International Workshop on Tropical Cyclones (IWTC-VII) has been the first held in WMO Regional Association I (Africa). The Workshop primary objectives were to review progress in tropical cyclone research and operational practices since IWTC-VI and to contribute in identifying future research and operational priorities. The six-day meeting set the scene for extensive in-depth discussions and resulted in a number of significant recommendations. A key Workshop outcome has been, in particular, the text book "Global Perspectives on Tropical Cyclones: From Science to Mitigation", a completely rewritten, updated and expanded version of the 1995 original "Global Perspectives on Tropical Cyclones".
