Education and training is offered to assists National Meteorological and Hydrological Services in developing and delivering the weather, climate and water-related services required for the safety and well-being of their populations and to become full partners in global collaborative efforts. This work centres mainly on the development of human resources.

Gender Equality

WMO is resolved in its efforts to achieve gender equality, empower women and build climate resilient societies. To this end, it is committed to mainstreaming gender in its governance, working structures, programmes and service delivery. It is also determined to attract more women in the fields of science and meteorology.

Weather reports about climate change

Weather presenters on TV and radio regularly inform us about the temperatures and other weather conditions that we feel on our skin and plan our day around. Because they know how to explain weather and climate in a useful and interesting way, WMO encourages weather presenters  to also reflect climate change science in their reports.
