1 WMO WIGOS in support of DRR 2013 Coordination Meeting of DRR FP October 2013, Geneva Dr S. Barrell, Chair, ICG-WIGOS Dr I. Zahumensky, WIGOS-PO

2 WMO Outline  Why WIGOS & What is WIGOS  WIGOS Framework & Vision  WIGOS Implementation:  WIP  National level  Responsibilities of Technical Commissions  WIGOS in support of DRR  Conclusions

3 Why WIGOS?  Shortcomings of the current situation:  Obs. networks/systems not sustainable and stable,  Design and planning not coordinated,  Obs. standards not respected (lack of compliance),  DBs not integrated (inconsistent, not compatible) including those of metadata,  Considerable deficiencies in QMS (maintenance, …),  Lack of qualified staff;  Through coordinated data sharing and networks/systems development, Members will be better equipped to address existing deficiencies and to meet future challenges

4 What is WIGOS?  An over-arching framework for the coordination and evolution of WMO observing systems and the contributions of WMO to co-sponsored observing systems;  A WMO priority & a key contribution to GFCS  It is about doing more & better with what we have now to enable more efficient and effective service delivery;  It is about changing the way we plan, operate and deliver observations to meet user needs.

5 WIGOS Framework  At its simplest, the WIGOS framework is about:  Documenting and implementing standard and recommended practices and procedures in making and sharing observations;  Collaboration & Cooperation & Coordination for efficiency and effectiveness;  Integration and interoperability in all senses;  Timely delivering observations that meet user needs in a way they can use them;  Empowering NMHSs

6 WIGOS Vision  Coordinated, comprehensive, sustainable, reliable & trusted observations for WMO;  Addressing, in a cost-effective and sustained manner, the evolving observing requirements in delivering weather, climate, water and related environmental services;  Enhanced coordination of WMO observing systems with those of partner organizations for the benefit of society (agencies outside NMHSs)

7 Reliable & trusted Observations  Timely,  Quality assured,  Quality controlled,  Well documented,  Compatible (consistent) For:  Early Warning Systems (Multi-hazard), and  Risk Assessment & Quantification;

8 WIGOS Implementation  The WIGOS framework shall be implemented to enable the integration, interoperability, optimized evolution and best-practice operation for  WMO observing systems, and  WMO’s contribution to co-sponsored systems.  WIGOS will use and exploit the WMO Information System (WIS) to allow continuous and reliable access to observational data and products, and associated metadata.

9 WIGOS Framework Implementation Plan (WIP) CONTENTS 1.Introduction and Background 2.Key Activity Areas for WIGOS Implementation 3.Project Management 4.Implementation 5.Resources 6.Risk Assessment / Management 7.Outlook Annexes KEY ACTIVITY AREAS 1)Management of WIGOS implementation 2)Collaboration with WMO co- sponsored observing systems & international partners 3)Design, planning and optimized evolution 4)Observing System operation and maintenance 5)Quality Management 6)Standardization, system interoperability and data compatibility 7)The WIGOS Operational Information Resource 8)Data and metadata management, delivery and archival 9)Capacity development 10)Communications and outreach

10 What does WIGOS mean at a National level?  N-WIGOS must be aligned with national needs/priorities (strategic and operational):  N-WIP has to take such a Strategy & Plan into account and built on it;  N-WIP must be consistent with:  WIP and R-WIP (Key Activity Areas),  GCOS-IP, EGOS-IP, GFCS-IP;  Understanding of national and regional DRR needs:  critical for design of observing networks and  operational drivers for WIGOS

11 National leadership through WIGOS  WIGOS and WIS provide means & opportunities:  To enhance national observing networks for benefit of all users,  To enhance sharing and accessibility of observations,  To reinforce central role of NMHS through partnerships & a network of networks,  To strengthen national mandate and authority,  Strong national coordination & cooperation will assist in building strong regional coordination & cooperation

12 Responsibilities of Technical Commissions:  To develop standards to support WIGOS in collaboration with partner organizations and programmes;  To update WIGOS related WMO regulatory material, including development of the Manual and Guide on WIGOS;  To develop guidance for the design and evolution of observing components of WIGOS;  To provide technical guidance and advice to Members and the regional associations on WIGOS;
