Global Basic Observing Network (GBON) implementation and compliance monitoring
Following adoption by the 2021 Extraordinary World Meteorological Congress of Technical Regulations for the Global Basic Observing Network (GBON) per Resolution 2 (Cg-Ext(2021)), now included in the Manual for the WMO Integrated Global Observing System (WIGOS), WMO-No. 1160, and to come into force on 1 January 2023, the Commission for Observation, Infrastructure and Information Systems (INFCOM) was tasked to develop technical guidelines, processes and procedures needed to ensure expedient and efficient implementation of GBON, and to prepare for effective performance and compliance monitoring of GBON.
In the meantime, the least developed Countries and SIDS will also have the opportunity to benefit from the Systematic Observations Financing Facility (SOFF), which is based on GBON requirements.
