Two 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 considerable support has been rendered to countries in enhancing their human resource and infrastructural capabilities. One example is WMO cooperation with China, which has promoted training and scientific research in the fields of meteorology and hydrology and enhanced regional environment monitoring and protection, especially in Africa. Under this agreement, WMO fellows have been able to benefit from training at Nanjing University of Information Science and Technology (NUIST). A group of WMO fellows who have just benefited from such training present their experience in this article.
