Following the second World War, governments and corporations recognized that the sciences of meteorology, hydrology and climatology could contribute to safety and efficiency in aviation, and advances in many other sectors of commerce and industry, and to the protection of human lives and property from natural hazards. To achieve those goals, National Meteorological and Hydrological Services (NMHSs) would have to expand their range of responsibilities and place greater emphasis on education and training in order to have capable and effective staff. Accordingly, enshrined in the WMO Convention signed by many governments in 1950 is the mandate to encourage research and training in meteorology and to assist in coordinating the international aspects of such research and training.
