WMO partner organization joins in celebrating World Meteorological Day

Luc Gnacadja, Executive Secretary of the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD) issued a special message on the occasion of World Meteorological Day on 23 March, which offered “an excellent occasion to appreciate the importance of efforts made to gather meteorological knowledge for informed decisions by end users including relevant policy-makers”. He said that now, more than ever, the world understands the imposing challenges to land ecosystems in its relationship to weather, climate and the atmosphere. “As the WMO and NMHSs better understand the complex precipitation processes, the UNCCD can better help its Parties to manage desertification and the mitigate the effects of drought.”
