The Commission for Aeronautical Meteorology (CAeM) has today launched its 2019 global survey. In response to a request emanating from WMO's Executive Council, this year's global survey is intended to gather direct feedback from Permanent Representatives of WMO Members of their sensitivity to current and foreseen future changes in aeronautical meteorological service provision. The global survey is open through to the end of February 2019.
