The Regional Office for Europe initiates a regular RA VI Newsletter, which will be issued twice a year. The objective is to raise the awareness of RA VI Members of the numerous activities taking place in the Region. The Newsletter will provide information about the work of the RA VI subsidiary bodies - working groups and task teams, regional events in hydrometeorology, as well as, interesting activities conducted by Members and other partners. We would like to encourage all RA VI Members to send us information about important developments, projects, weather extremes and other interesting stories from the daily life of the National Meteorological and Hydrological Services. You may submit such materials (including photos) to: nberghi[at]wmo.int.
