2 2 Outline WMO Implementation Process Why Regional Plan (RP) is needed RP Components RP Characteristics RA VI WIS Roadmap

3 3 WMO WMO Implementation Process WMO Convention:  Members need to work together to coordinate, standardize, improve and encourage efficiencies in the exchange of meteorological, climatological, hydrological and related information between them, in the aid of human activities. WMO, as a specialized agency of UN on weather, climate and water, is a standard-making organization Standards and Recommended Practices (SARPs) approved by Congress or EC, become implementable decisions for all Members

4 4 WMO WMO Implementation Process WMO Convention:  Art 9 (a): All Members shall do their utmost to implement the decisions of Congress;  Art 9 (b): If, however, any Member finds it impracticable to give effect to some requirement in a technical resolution adopted by Congress, such Member shall inform the Secretary- General of the Organization whether its inability to give effect to it is provisional or final, and state its reasons.

8 8 WMO RA VI WIS RP Outline Why Regional Plan? Harmonization and synchronization of the implementation effort – efficiency, speed Clear determination of roles and responsibilities in accordance with the regional scenario Capacity development through regional cooperation – transfer of knowledge and know-how from developed to developing part of the Region Regional Plans should be harmonized to achieve global harmonization

9 9 WMO RA VI RP Outline Elements of the Regional Plan: WIS Regional Structure – designation of centres Areas of responsibility Timelines for implementation Back-ups, contingencies Capacity development – training, technical assistance Monitoring and evaluation
