Training and Awareness

VLAb Logo

An important goal of the WMO Space Programme is to promote the capacity of WMO Members to make wide and meaningful use of satellite data and products, with particular attention being paid to the needs of less advanced countries.

The Space Programme organizes or co-sponsors Training events in various WMO Regions with the support of CGMS Members.
