The World Meteorological Congress is the supreme body of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO). The Congress assembles its delegates of Members once every four years to determine the strategic direction of the organization.
This year, the 17th World Meteorological Congress was informed on how the implementation of the Global Framework for Climate Services (GFCS) has enabled the development of partnerships within and outside the UN system, and how these partnerships have been formalized and implemented. GWP is an active partner in the GFCS and was therefore invited to present its work contributing to the GFCS.
GWP Acting Executive Secretary Rudolph Cleveringa delivered a video statement at the event on 27 May:
During the Congress, GWP is also jointly with WMO organising a side event on the HelpDesks of the WMO/GWP Integrated Drought Management Programme (IDMP) and the WMO/GWP Associated Programme on Flood Management (APFM). This event takes place on 2 June - the full Congress agenda and documents are available here: http://cg-17.wmo.int/
