Hide / Show Abstract

The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) was founded in 1950 to facilitate worldwide cooperation in the establishment and maintenance of systems for making, exchanging and standardizing weather-related information, and to further the application of meteorology to aviation, shipping, water problems, agriculture and other activities to benefit mankind. In 1996, environmental issues continued to be at the forefront of WMO activities. Continuing its leadership role on climate issues, WMO promoted the "Climate Agenda", a framework for coordinating the climate-related programmes and initiatives of international organizations.
