WMO Integrated Global Observing System (WIGOS)
The WMO Integrated Global Observing System (WIGOS) is one of WMO’s top priorities as the new overarching framework for all WMO observing systems.
Current global challenges demand a significant worldwide upgrade of space- and surface-based observations and predictions. In response, WIGOS provides a new, integrated approach incorporating the most recent scientific and technical advances.
The WIGOS framework promotes network integration and partnership outreach, and engages the regional and national actors essential for successful integration of these systems. These national and international WIGOS partnerships allow WMO Members to:
- build observing capabilities
- achieve better national, regional and global coverage
- improve economic efficiency.
WIGOS is enhancing our understanding of the Earth System by supporting improved weather and climate products and services, and providing significantly more, improved observations.
