Focus Area (OPCAME) 1- Operational Agricultural Meteorology

Focus Area 1 will emphasize the importance of improving the provision of agrometeorological products, services, services delivery and communication to users of agricultural services (e.g. for crops, rangelands, livestock, forestry, and fisheries). It will also provide guidance to enhance the contribution of the field of agricultural meteorology for operational applications in agricultural sectors.

Focus Area 1 activities during the intersessional period 2014–2018 should work towards achieving the following outputs:

(a) Report and recommendations to CAgM on a review of the operational agricultural
meteorological services required for the livestock sector;

(b) Report and recommendations to CAgM on a review of the operational agricultural
meteorological services required for the forestry sector including fire weather issues;

(c) Report and recommendations to CAgM on a review of the operational agricultural
meteorological services required for the water resources sector;

(d) Report and recommendations to CAgM on a review of the operational agricultural
meteorological services for the crops sector;

(e) Report and recommendations to CAgM on a review of the operational agricultural
meteorological services required for early warning systems for pests/diseases for plants
and animals;

(f) Report and recommendations to CAgM and JCOMM on a review of the operational
agricultural meteorological services required for fisheries in conjunction with the Joint
JCOMM/CAgM Task Team on Weather, Climate and Fisheries;

(g) Publication of case studies of operational agricultural meteorological services, including the dissemination of services, from a range of agro-ecosystems in various countries that could be used as examples by other countries to improve their agricultural meteorological
services;

(h) Handbook of recommended procedures for development and delivery of accurate and,
reliable agricultural meteorological products through collaboration and coordination with
other WMO Programmes and international and regional organizations, as required;

(i) Development of strategies aimed at strengthening agricultural meteorological information
dissemination systems to ensure the timely delivery of relevant agricultural meteorological
services provided through NMHSs;

(j) Evaluation of the up-take and implementation by NMHSs of the previous recommendations made by CAgM.
