Seventh WMO International Workshop on Monsoons (IWM-7)

Advancing the Prediction of Monsoons for Societal Benefit

The International Workshop on Monsoons (IWM) is a major quadrennial symposia/workshops series under the World Weather Research Programme (WWRP) of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO). The seventh workshop in this series, the IWM-7, is being organized at New Delhi, India, jointly by the India Meteorological Department (IMD), Ministry of Earth Sciences (MoES), Government of India, and the WWRP Working Group on Tropical Meteorology Research (WGTMR), in cooperation with the CLIVAR/GEWEX Monsoons Panel of the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP) and the International Monsoons Project Office (IMPO) hosted by the Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology (IITM). The workshop is scheduled to be held during 23-26 March 2022. The IWM provides a forum for researchers and forecasters to discuss recent advances and current issues involving monsoons as key features of earth-system phenomena covering weather-to-climate time scales affecting large populations around the world. The emphasis is to address monsoon impacts as part of the societal challenges prioritized by the WWRP: high-impact weather, water, agriculture, urbanization and new technologies, in monsoon regions around the world. Outcomes from the workshop are expected to facilitate the transfer of new science and technology to National Meteorological and Hydrological Services (NMHSs) in these regions.
