WMO Outline What is CBS CBS Framework & WMO Vision CBS activities Responsibilities of Technical Commissions CBS in support of DRR Conclusions
What is CBS? "…On 17 March 1951, a nearly one-year-old WMO took over all the responsibilities of the International Meteorological Organization (IMO), including the IMO Commission for Synoptic Weather Information (CSWI), which had been established in 1923. WMO immediately renamed the CSWI as the WMO Commission for Synoptic Meteorology (CSM), but with extended responsibilities, and then again renamed it as CBS during Sixth Congress in 1971....the challenge for CBS is to guarantee the development of the basic systems infrastructure in support of all programmes". Statement by M. Jarraud, Secretary-General, at opening of the Extraordinary Session of the Commission for Basic Systems (Seoul, 9 Nov 2006) The main activities of the Commission for Basic Systems (CBS) are related to the development, implementation and operation of integrated systems for observing, data processing, data communication and data management, and to the provision of public weather services, in response to requirements of all WMO Programmes and opportunities provided by technological developments. CBS is the lead Technical Commission for the overall World Weather Watch Programme (WWW), the WMO Space Programme and the Public Weather Services Programme.

Our collective vision…. The vision of WMO is to provide world leadership in expertise and international cooperation in weather, climate, hydrology and water resources and related environmental issues and thereby contribute to the safety and well-being of people throughout the world and to the economic benefit of all nationsvision
How do we achieve that Vision? By enabling an integrated multi-hazard multi-scale weather and environmental alerting platforms from nowcasting to climatological timescales that takes into consideration the complete cycle relating weather to impacts and the underlying infrastructures (social, physical and environmental)

Responsibilities of Technical Commissions and related Technical Programs The eight technical commissions are composed of experts designated by Members and are responsible for studying meteorological and hydrological operational systems, applications and research. They establish methodology and procedures and make recommendations to the Executive Council and the Congress. The technical commissions usually meet once every four years, when they elect a President and Vice-President. The Commission for Basic Systems holds an extraordinary session in between. They also have an emerging responsibility to work horizontally in order to maximize the investment of Members We need to look at it from an Enterprise perspective… the global meteorological and hydrological enterprise

In conclusion… Through its activities, CBS does support DRR and also enables other TCs and TPs to do so We need to move toward an integrated DRR framework to allow Members address problems in a: systematic, coordinated, sustainable, efficient & effective way. This is why we are here….
