World Meteorological Organization (WMO)

The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and its community of National Meteorological and Hydrological Services, Technical Commissions, Research Board, Programmes, Regional Offices, Regional Climate Centers and Regional Specialized Meteorological and Hydrological Centers, contribute to accelerating action in achieving the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) at a national, regional and international level, through a broad range of science and services that help save lives, protect livelihoods and promote well-being. Whether it be regarding food security, health, water and sanitation, resilient infrastructure and cities, clean energy, the sustainable management of oceans, land and ecosystems, building more resilient societies to weather and climate events remains an imperative and a necessary step to accelerating progress towards sustainable development. Whilst weather, climate, hydrology and environmental services cut across a wide range of SDGs, WMO also maintains a focus, and is the co-custodian of SDG 13 on Climate Action, providing decision makers with the scientific facts and analyses they need to inform urgent climate action policies and achieve SDG 13.
