6Introduction: Need for continued efforts Despite the progress in improving services,more societies are increasingly vulnerable to natural hazards and national economies are becoming more sensitive to climate variability and change as evidenced by the greater frequency and intensity of climate extreme events.There is a need to improve weather, climate, water and related environmental services as well as communications and emergency response activities, particularly in developing and least developed countries (LDCs), Small Island Developing States (SIDS), and other vulnerable countries.

9Global Societal Needs Global Societal Needs Improved protection of life and property (related to impacts of hazardous weather, climate, water and other environmental events and increased safety of transport on land, at sea and in the air;Poverty alleviation, sustained livelihoods and economic growth (in connection with the Millennium Development Goals) including improved health and social well-being of citizens (related to weather, climate, water and environmental events and influence); andSustainable use of natural resources and improved environmental quality.Mission- the purpose statement in the WMO ConventionVision- Provide world leadership in expertise and international cooperation in weather, climate, hydrology and water resources, and related environmental issues, and thereby to contribute to the safety and well-being of people throughout the world and to the economic benefit of all nations.
10Achievements The achievements of WMO include: (a) Free and Unrestricted Exchange of Meteorological and Related Data and Products; essential for all real time weather, climate, water and related environmental services together with the assessment of the evolution of the climate system;(b) International Standards for Meteorological and Related Observations ensuring high quality and intercomparability of data – a vital feature for detecting climate change and developing global weather and climate models and related services;(c) Capacity Building - in NMHSs throughout the world;(d) Promoting Science and Technology – transforming leading edge research into useful products and services;(e) International Leadership - recognized leader in the UN System with respect to the monitoring and prediction of weather, climate, water, and related environmental conditions.
11Future Services to address GSNs With global societal needs escalating, future weather, climate, water and related environmental products and services will require significant targeted improvements to:(a) Provide user targeted timely, accurate and cost-effective products and services;(b) Provide and promote the use of products and services in addressing the challenges of adaptation to climate variability and change;(c) Enhance the effectiveness of their services and lower costs by promoting cooperation and partnerships nationally and internationally;(d) Enhance the visibility of its Members and their activities by more fully participating in international programmes and conventions; and(e) Assist countries in translating commitments, agreed within the framework of global conferences, summits and international conventions, into effective and practical measures.
