WMO is a specialized agency of the United Nations (UN) with 191 Member States and Territories. It is the UN system's authoritative voice on the state and behaviour 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.

As weather, climate and the water cycle know no national boundaries, international cooperation at a global scale is essential for the development of meteorology and operational hydrology as well as to reap the benefits from their application. WMO provides the framework for such international cooperation.

Celebrating World Oceans Day at the 18th World Meteorological Congress June 07 2019 @ 9:00 AM - June 12 2019 @ 6:00 PM

World Oceans Day 2019 falls in the middle of the 18th World Meteorological Congress, the World Meteorological Organisation’s major decision-making conference held every 4 years held at the Centre International de Conventions in Geneva. This year, oceans feature strongly on the Congress Agenda, as do gender perspectives; so it is an opportunity to weave the World Oceans Day theme throughout the session, raising awareness of inclusive approaches to working with our oceans to WMO’s 193 members.
