Regional Climate Centre XIV RA VI decided to take immediate steps to implement a network of multiple multifunctional centres and/or specialized centres on a pilot basis as the structure for implementing RCC activities in RA VI, in order to determine optimal composition of the RA VI RCC network which would best comply with the functions of RCC.
REGIONAL INSTRUMENT CENTRES XIV RA VI designated the Calibration Laboratory of the Slovak Hydromet. Institute and the Calibration Laboratory of the Environmental Agency of the Republic of Slovenia as new Regional Instrument Centres (RIC) for RA VI (in addition to the old one – RIC Trappes (Meteo-France).

Drought Management Centre Centre for South-eastern Europe A unanimous agreement has been reached in April 2006 on establishing a sub- regional Drought Management Centre Centre for SE Europe. At the meeting in Geneva on 26 September 2006, Slovenia was selected to host the Centre. Subsequently, WMO and UNCCD Secretariat are preparing a comprehensive project proposal in full cooperation with the host country.
RA VI Strategic Plan The most important outcome of the 14 th session of WMO Regional Association VI (Europe), held in Heidelberg, Germany, 7-15 September 2005, was a decision to develop the Regional Strategic Plan. The goal of the Strategic Plan is to strengthen the capabilities of all NMHSs in RA VI by providing appropriate meteorological, hydrological and related services in the prevention and mitigation of natural disasters, protection of life and property, safeguarding of the environment and contributing to sustainable development. The session adopted an Action Plan for implementation while the Strategic Plan is being developed.

Strategic aims (contd) Building the RA VI Strategic Plan – Christian BLONDIN – Riga, Latvia, 6&7 November WMO RA VI will be recognized as the primary source of expertise  on weather, climate, water and related environmental  and development  issues throughout Europe, through a coordinated meteorological and hydrological infrastructure , and a major contributor worldwide  to the safety and well-being of people and to sustainable development . Strategic Aim 1 : Work collectively to ensure that any available expertise within the Region is utilized to meet requirements for services. Strategic Aim 2 : Ensure that the information, knowledge and capabilities exist within RA VI to meet the expressed and expected requirements. Strategic Aim 3 : Ensure the decision-making bodies are aware of RA VI expertise and capabilities in order to make best use of existing assets and planned developments, and to avoid unnecessary redundancies. Strategic Aim 4 : Create a RA VI Hydrological and Meteorological Infrastructure which combine capabilities of NMHSs, regional and sub-regional organizations, and any voluntary contributors, under the supervision of an appropriate steering committee. Strategic Aim 5 : Create the framework to be able to project RA VI expertise and capabilities out of the Region in collaboration with other WMO Regional Associations and UN bodies working with WMO. Strategic Aim 6 : Identify and assess continuously key stakes and challenges related to sustainable development within RA VI, and deliver proper services to contribute to consolidate the sustainability of the Region.
The Way Forward The RAVI Strategic Plan should be linked to the WMO 7SP and be valid for the same time period. This would require the final draft of the RAVI Strategic Plan to be presented to the RA VI President and the Management Group at the 15 th WMO Congress, and for the President to request any last amendments (following consultation with the RAVI Members at Congress) before approving the Plan for implementation from January 2008.
