    Lead Organization:
    • World Meteorological Organization (WMO).

    Join this informal talk to know more about some of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) activities related to sustainable urban development and the implementation of the New Urban Agenda.
    Is your city experiencing weather, environment and climate related challenges? We can help. Come discuss your city’s issues with experts from the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and the International Association for Urban Climate (IAUC). Find out about research and best practices in other cities that are facing challenges.  Explore the resources and opportunities that can come from working with experts from these agencies.
    WMO together with its collaborators and partner cities will introduce its focused effort to provide the science-based integrated urban services supporting the safe, healthy and resilient cities through the development of Urban Integrated Weather, Environment and Climate Services. The aim is to build urban services that meet the special needs of cities through a combination of dense observation networks, high-resolution forecasts, multi-hazard early warning systems, and climate services.
