The purpose of the Agricultural Meteorology Programme (AGMP) is to support food and agricultural production and activities. The Programme assists WMO Members in provision of meteorological and related services to the agricultural community to help develop sustainable and economically viable agricultural systems, improve production and quality, reduce losses and risks, decrease costs, increase efficiency in the use of water, labour and energy, conserve natural resources and decrease pollution by agricultural chemicals or other agents that contribute to the degradation of the environment.
To address the issue of national drought policy, the World Meteorological Congress at its Sixteenth Session held in Geneva from in June 2011 recommended the organization of a “High-level Meeting on National Drought Policy (HMNDP)”.
