Programme on Cooperation in Water-related Issues (CWI)

The objective of the Programme on Cooperation in Water-related Issues (CWI) is to increase the effectiveness and visibility of the activities of NHSs through inter-organizational collaboration in the field of water. It also strives to enhance the role of hydrological data and information in tackling various environment issues.

The Programme supports and assists international river basin authorities and non-governmental and international organizations in their work in hydrology and water resources management through close collaboration with NHSs. In addition, it promotes joint activities and collaboration with scientific and technical nongovernmental organizations.

Through active participation in UN-Water activities it ensures appropriate cooperation between WMO and the other United Nations organizations that have water-related programmes. In particular, through close links with UNESCO, as well as co-sponsorship of activities organized by NGOs and IGOs, participation of NHSs in activities of relevant technical associations, regional bodies, and basin organizations is promoted under this Programme.

For more details on the plans for the implementation of CWI Programme see WMO Secretariat Operating Plan, p. 33
