The increasing population of the world imposes new challenges on society to manage the finite resources of the planet in a sustainable and environmentally responsible manner. The WMO/IOC Joint Technical Commission on Oceanography and Marine Meteorology, JCOMM, is committed to improving and expanding the availability of operational marine data necessary for monitoring, understanding and forecasting both short and long term meteorological variations. JCOMM also needs to respond, within the limits of its own responsibilities, to assist in bringing accurate and dependable information to all countries of the world.
It will be the vision of the JCOMM Capacity Building programme to understand the needs of Member States and to address these deficiencies through the dedication and mutual cooperation of all countries, under the guidance of a global plan for JCOMM.
