1 WMO Path forward to Cg-17, EC-67 EC-PORS-5, Wellington, Feb.2014 Miroslav Ondráš, Chief WMO Observing Systems Division WMO; Name of Department (ND)

2 WMO Cg-16, 2011 : WCP  RCCs:  Cg encouraged initiatives to develop cross-regional RCCs  Cg noted a recommendation to define the scope of Arctic and Antarctic RCCs  COFs:  Cg welcomed initiatives by Members to establish and sustain new RCOFs in … and Polar Regions  Cg noted EC-PORS Services White Paper - limited availability of climate products and services in Polar Regions, and agreed that PCOFs might serve to bridge this gap  Invite WCP to report to Cg-17

3 WMO Cg-16, 2011: WMO Polar Activities (1)  Cg agreed that operational and research observing networks in Polar Regions should be integrated within the framework WIGOS and WIS & agreed that observing networks in Polar Regions should be enhanced to include cryosphere related variables & recognized that a major contribution to the above will be through development of GCW  Report o Cg-17 on GCW development  Cg agreed to integrate all Antarctic networks into an AntON that will comprise all operational stations, all of which should produce climate messages, and adopted Resolution 55 (Cg- XVI) – AntON  submit to Cg-17 new resolution  Cg adopted Resolution 56 (Cg-XVI) – Amendments to the Manual on GOS, Vol. II, Regional Aspects – The Antarctic – text revised by ATT –  (submit to Cg-17 new resolution ? )

4 WMO Cg-16, 2011: WMO Polar Activities (2)  Concern that data from many Antarctic stations funded by research agencies are not available in real-time and concern that the high communication cost is also a limiting factor and requested EC, in collaboration with CBS and JCOMM, to investigate possible ways to reduce such costs through an international forum of users of satellite data telecommunication systems  Report to Cg-17 on SATCOM  Importance of the relationship between WMO and the ATCM = Cg encouraged EC and SG to work with the ATCM on issues of mutual responsibility and to ensure representation of WMO at future ATCM meetings  Report to Cg-17 on collaboration with ATCM

5 WMO Cg-16, 2011: WMO Polar Activities (3)  Cg agreed to embark on a multi-year endeavour towards GIPPS, noting the Concept Paper and adopted Resolution 57 (Cg-XVI) – GIPPS  submit to Cg-17 new resolution  Cg agreed that WMO needs to have a focus on polar observations, research and services to meet its responsibilities on regional and global weather, climate, water and related environmental matters, and adopted Resolution 58 (Cg-XVI) – WMO Polar Activities  submit to Cg-17 new resolution  Cg agreed that to move the IPD idea forward, to establish a consultative process through a steering group leading to IPD Concept Document. Congress adopted Resolution 59 (Cg-XVI) – IPD initiative  submit to Cg-17 new resolution

6 WMO Cg-16, 2011: WMO Polar Activities (4)  Cg agreed with the development of GCW as outlined in the GCW Implementation Strategy  submit to Cg-17 new GCW-IP  Cg agreed that WMO needs to have a focus on global cryosphere issues and adopted Resolution 60 (Cg-XVI) – GCW  submit to Cg-17 new resolution  Cg requested the EC and SG to oversee GCW’s initial development to ensure optimal management of, and support to, the initiative  Report to Cg-17 on how GCW is managed and supported 

7 WMO EC-63, 2011: WMO Polar Activities (1)  EC noted Resolution 57 (Cg-XVI) – GIPPS by which EC (EC-PORS) was requested: 1.To develop a scalable, detailed strategic plan, laying out a path that WMO will take to identify and address gaps in our scientific understanding of polar processes, improve data and service delivery, and promote or establish national research programmes  submit to (EC) Cg-17 detailed plan 2.To implement this decision and establish the initial governance mechanism by providing broad oversight, guidance and monitoring of progress  EC-65 was informed how the implementation of this decision 3.To ensure there is broad consultation and participation from other international organizations and agencies that wish to contribute to the development of GIPPS  EC-65 was informed on consultation process 4.Submit a comprehensive report on the development of GIPPS to the Seventeenth Congress  submit a Report to Cg-17

8 WMO EC-63, 2011: WMO Polar Activities (2)  EC noted Resolution 59 (Cg-XVI) – IPD Initiative by which EC was requested: 1.To secure the WMO representation in a steering group that would be established to lead the IPD consultative process and prepare a draft IPD Concept Document  EC-65 was informed on WMO representation in SG 2.To consult with the relevant international organizations to define the framework, objectives, resource requirements, timing, and organizational structure of an IPD  to inform EC-66 on the objectives, timing, structure (through Concept Document and new Resolution – see below) 3.To coordinate the role and participation of WMO in the relevant initiatives that would be conducted under the auspices of an IPD  submit to Cg-17 new resolution on IPPI 4.To review and approve the IPD Concept Document at its sixty- fourth session with a view of determining modalities and the level of WMO participation in the initiative  submit to EC-66 and/or Cg-17 the Concept Document

9 WMO EC-63, 2011: WMO Polar Activities (3)  EC noted Resolution 60 (Cg-XVI) – GCW by which EC was requested: 1.To establish a mechanism to steer and monitor the activity and to achieve the broadest possible collaboration and cooperation  mechanism established by EC-63 2.To ensure the active participation and representation of the principal bodies concerned and also the participation, as appropriate, of technical experts and representatives of agencies undertaking observing and research initiatives relevant to the cryosphere  to inform EC-66 on the engagement with partners 3.To submit a comprehensive report, including an update on implementation plans, on the development of GCW to the Seventeenth Congress  submit to Cg-17 a Report that should include the new GCW-IP

10 WMO EC-63, 2011: Review of Panels  EC-63 adopted Resolution 5 (EC-LXIII) – EC- PORS, by which:  EC re-establish the Panel  Amended terms of references of the EC Panel  Submit to EC-67 new resolution on PORS with amended TOR (GIPPS, IPPI, GCW, 3rd Pole, services) and with a proposal of new membership
