A significant step towards advancing weather, water, climate, and related environmental services in the WMO Regional Association VI
The WMO Regional Association VI Team on Research, Modelling and Prediction has developed a comprehensive guide to assist Member States in enhancing their research, modeling, and prediction activities in order to better address the needs of decision-makers for science-based weather, water, climate, and related environmental information. This guide is an essential part of the Regional Framework for weather, water, climate, and related environmental services.
The guide is based on three pillars: investments in Research, Modeling, and Prediction (RMP), experimental and technical work, and the transformation of independent research activities into a research process. By focusing on these three areas, Member States can improve the quality and relevance of their scientific outputs, leading to better decision-making and more effective use of resources.
Ultimately, the success of these efforts will be measured by improvements in the timely delivery and usefulness of science-based products and services offered to different socio-economic sectors and regions. By providing more accurate and relevant information, decision-makers will be better equipped to address the challenges posed by weather, water, climate, and related environmental issues, leading to a more sustainable and resilient future for all.
The endorsement of the guide by the WMO Regional Association VI Research Group and Management Group highlights the importance and value of this resource for Member States in the region. The guide provides a framework for enhancing the quality and relevance of scientific outputs, which can ultimately lead to better decision-making and improved outcomes for the region's socio-economic sectors and communities. The endorsement of the guide is a significant step towards advancing weather, water, climate, and related environmental services in the region, and it is encouraging to see the WMO Regional Association VI and the Management Group's commitment to this goal.
