WMO Water Declaration 2021
As a specialized agency of the United Nations, the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) is dedicated to international cooperation and coordination of activities related to the state and behavior of the Earth’s atmosphere, its interaction with the land and oceans, the weather and
climate it produces, and the resulting distribution of water resources.
WMO Members work around the clock to monitor the Earth System and provide essential services, information, and scientific knowledge on hydrology for sustainable development, climate change mitigation, as well as resilience, and adaptation to key societal needs sectors.
The Water Declaration is a key milestone in the 70 years history of WMO and raises the organization’s ambition in support of achieving internationally agreed sustainable development goals and targets.
