World Meteorological Organization (WMO)

In 1993, the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) continued its activities in accordance with the programmes and budget adopted in 1991 by the World Meteorological Congress for the period 1992-1995. The Congress meets once every four years, but the 36-member Executive Council meets annually to supervise the implementation of WMO’s programmes and regulations. At its forty-fifth session (Geneva, 8-18 June 1993), the Council adopted policy and strategy principles for the fourth WMO long-term plan (1996-2005) to ensure that meteorology and operational hydrology contributed to sustainable development, the implementation of Agenda 21 of the 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED), the 1992 United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and the proposed international convention to combat desertification. The Council approved the Guidelines on the Role of National Meteorological and Hydrological Services in the Implementation of Agenda 21 and the Framework Convention on Climate Change.
