WMO Statement on the Status of the Global Climate


Much of our knowledge on climate comes from global scientific and technical programmes coordinated by WMO. The Organization's mandate is to coordinate and facilitate world-wide cooperation in making and exchanging standardized and quality-controlled meteorological, hydrological and geophysical observations as well as their analysis, understanding and interpretation. WMO is sensitive and responsive to the changing global needs for meteorological and hydrological support to an ever-widening spectrum of human activities.

WMO, working with UNEP, is responsible for the periodic assessments of climate change issued by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and for the publication of the biennial reviews of the Global Climate System. The latter publication is an output from the Climate System Monitoring project of the World Climate Data and Monitoring Programme (WCDMP). In June 1993, the 45th session of the Executive Council of WMO decided that greater efforts were needed to promote the WMO role as a provider of credible scientific information on climate and its variability and requested that arrangements be made for the regular wide distribution, starting in 1994, of WMO statements on the status of the global climate. In response to this decision, statements have been provided annually through the Climate Change Detection project of the WCDMP.
