UN Launches Information System to Boost Disaster Prevention

“The WMO Information System is the pillar of our strategy for managing and moving weather, climate and water information in the 21st century,” said WMO Secretary-General Michel Jarraud. “It will reduce the costs of information exchange incurred by national meteorological and hydrological services and maximize exploitation of advances in communications technology,” he said. The system will also cut the costs of data exchange and integrate information from national and global data centres, WMO said in a news release.

Mr. Jarraud emphasized that the system will “allow users outside the meteorological community to have free access to this information for the first time.” The system builds on the Global Telecommunication System of WMO’s World Weather Watch, which has been the backbone of meteorological information exchange for the past 40 years and is used for daily weather observations and forecasts, tropical cyclone warnings and tsunami alerts, among other applications.
