Commission for Basic Systems, OPAG on Integrated Observing Systems - Expert team on evolution of Global Observing Systems, seventh session (ET-EGOS-7): final report
The Seventh Session of the CBS Expert Team on the Evolution of Global Observing Systems (ET-EGOS-7) was held at the WMO Headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland, from 7 to 11 May 2012, and was chaired by Dr John Eyre (United Kingdom). A key issue discussed at the meeting was the finalization of the new Implementation Plan for the Evolution of Global Observing Systems (EGOS-IP) responding to the Vision of the Global Observing System in 2025 (approved by EC-LXI in 2009) and to plans of the WMO Integrated Global Observing System (WIGOS). The new EGOS-IP will completely replace the current EGOS-IP and will be a key document providing Members with clear and focused guidelines and recommended actions in order to stimulate cost-effective evolution of the observing systems, addressing in an integrated way the requirements of WMO programmes and co-sponsored programmes. The goal is to submit the new EGOS-IP for approval by CBS in September 2012, then to EC in June 2013. The meeting identified a number of points to be addressed in a communication strategy for the launch and securing of commitment to the new EGOS-IP.
