Secretary-General's message

Secretary-General Photo  

WMO contributes every hour of every day to the welfare of humankind. In all countries its actions are manifested by the services and warnings provided by the National Meteorological and Hydrological Services for safety, support to socio economic development, protection of the environment, and policy formulation. This is achieved operationally through a unique network of observing stations over land and water and in space, while national, regional and global centres produce and exchange weather forecasts and climate projections for the benefit of all nations.

Timely information on how WMO is contributing to human welfare and sustainable development will be contained in the bi monthly publication, MeteoWorld, available in print and an expanded electronic version on the Web. I hope everyone will find it useful as all human activities, one way or another, are affected by weather, climate and water.
