Training activities

The education and training activities in hydrology and water resources of WMO are guided by the WMO Strategy on Education and Training in Hydrology and Water Resources, approved by CHy-XII in October 2004 and endorsed by EC-LVII in 2006 and Cg-XV in 2007. In 2008, CHy-XIII reviewed the Strategy. This new version, is available here

The main objective of the Strategy is to optimize the available resources, by concentrating WMO’s support in those areas identified by the “WMO hydrological community” as requiring priority attention. Identification of requirements is carried out through the Regional Working Groups in Hydrology through surveys on training needs
