‘Weather-Ready, Climate-Smart’


The International Meteorological Organisation (IMO) was founded in 1873. It changed to World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) on 23 March 1950. One year later, that is, in 1951 WMO became a specialized agency of the United Nations Organisation for meteorology (climate and weather), hydrology (water related issues) and geophysical sciences (environmental issues, etc.). Today, there are 191 Countries world-wide which constitute member states of WMO. The latter has classified these in six regions.

Year in year out, the World Meteorological Organization marks 23 March of each year, as World Meteorological Day. The theme of this year is ‘Weather-ready, climate-smart.


 The Press Release of the WMO is as follows:

<><><> The ever-growing global population faces a wide range of hazards such as tropical cyclone, storm surges, heavy rains, heatwaves, droughts and many more. Long-term climate change is increasing the intensity and frequency of extreme weather and climate events and causing sea level rise and ocean acidification. Urbanization and the spread of megacities means that more of us are exposed and vulnerable. Now more than ever, we need to be weather-ready, climate-smart and water-wise.

This is why one of the top priorities of WMO and National Meteorological and Hydrological Services (NMHSs) is to protect lives, livelihoods and property from the risks related to weather, climate and water events. Thereby, WMO and its Members support the global agenda on sustainable development, climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction.

WMO and National Meteorological Services design operational services ranging from daily weather forecasts to long-term climate predictions that help society to be weather-ready and climate-smart. Further National Hydrological Services are essential for the sound management of fresh water resources for agriculture, industry, energy and human consumption, so that we can be water-wise. These services empower us to manage the risks and seize opportunities related to weather, climate and water.

Early warning systems and other disaster risk reduction measures are vital for boosting the resilience of our communities. Climate services can inform decisions on both climate change mitigation and adaptation. Hydrological monitoring increases our understanding of the water cycle and so supports water management.<><><>

On the other hand, the Message of Petteri Taalas, Secretary General of WMO, for marking the occasion reads as transcripted below:

\/\/ “The Records in Global Disaster Costs for year 2017 which exceeded 300 billion $ have been broken. Climate Mitigation Failure would have a High Impact on th Global Economy as well as Water Scarcity and Food Security Challenges... We have counted that 10 of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals are Highly Linked to Climate, Weather and Water Issues that we are Dealing with...There is also a Great Need for further Development of Services in Most of our Member Countries, further Development of the Early Warning Services and Climate Services and Hydrological Services...That form our perspective is the Best Way to Adapt to Climate Change. We have already Tripled our Funding during the past two years to Assist our Members. And we have New Agreements with World Bank, European Union, UNDP, Green Climate Fund. We also have a New Funding Instrument called CREWS which is the Initiative of the Government of France. We are working together with the individual Governments to Advocate the Role of National Meteorological and Hydrological Services and it really makes sense to Invest more on those Services. At WMO we have also been preparing a New Strategy for the coming years and the basic idea there is that we would Focus much more on Concrete Actions which is beneficial for countries and their Meteorological and Hydrological Services. We are also in the process of Reshaping our Constituent Body Structures and their Working Practices to be Fit for Purpose and to be able to provide Better Services for their Members and use our Resources more Wisely. So, many things are happening and we are very happy to work with you, our Members and Meteorological Services and we look forward for your Input on how we should Serve you in a Better Way. With these words, once again, HAPPY WORLD METTEOROLOGICAL DAY”.\/\/

The explanations made above are crystal clear. The WMO is preparing a New Strategy which will be focused on Concrete Actions in view of rendering Better Services by utilizing resources More Wisely. At this conjuncture, it is noteworthy to mention that there are many WMO Member States which are not providing adequate data and information to their respective population. Such deplorable situations have been signaled to WMO President-David Grimes and to Director Dr Mukabana-WMO/AMCOMET since 29 March 2013. A few current examples are listed below.

  1. The Department of Hydrology and Meteorology (DHM) of Nepal has not been having recourse to Satellite and Radar Services, except some limited facilities from Chinese Meteorological Administration. The government of Nepal is unwilling to invest on Satellite, except on three Meteorological Radars, which are still under construction. The Weather Forecasters of DHM have, nevertheless, been making some remarkable and laudable work for the  Safety and Protection of the population of Nepal. The Warnings regarding the Deadly Floods of 08-15 August 2017 were provided Early and Timely, despite the subsequent loss of about 70 lives therein. It is at that particular period that the  
  2. Director General of DHM Dr. R. Sharma made a suggestion to me during our meeting, at the Head Office in Katmandu, Nepal on 07 August 2017. He requested me to intervene at the India Meteorological Department of (IMD) in Delhi, India for obtaining access to Satellite data and information by DHM. The problem was solved after I met the DG and ADG of IMD at Delhi on 29 August 2017. Satellite services of IMD, which is also the RSMC of this zone, are accessible to Nepal now. See pictures and Verify here-
  3. There are more than a dozen loopholes and shortcomings at the Mauritius Meteorological Services (MMS). This situation was signaled to WMO Head Quarters on 29 March 2013 and thereafter. Yet, the situation is almost the same. In addition, there are other new problems cropping right now. Director Mungra has retired from the MMS during the starting of the Summer Season 2017-2018. His post is still vacant. As mentioned in other articles, that the Forecasters of this National Hydrological and Meteorological Services (NHMS) are still in ‘amateurism’, except on a few cases. They are unable to keep pace with the formation and rapid development of Cyclones and Thunderstorms which have been and are still prevailing dynamically in the South-West Indian Ocean (SWIO). Regional and International Centres like JTWC and MFR are already providing crucial information, the use of which are not being maximized and/or updated by the MMS. The recent Weather Events justify all these. It is worthwhile to notice that the new Meteosat-8 is supplying very poor and dissatisfying Footprint for the South-West Indian Ocean. Moreover, the MMS is not updating the Satellite Imageries at a regular accurate pace. So, it is difficult for anyone to follow the identification and evolution of Weather Systems on Real-Time. Check it here-;
  4. It is a usual explanation expressed by Meteorologists and other people by stating that Meteorology is  Not an Accurate Science. This is totally wrong and confusing. Such is the reaction by Meteorologists who have failed or are late in identifying and foreseeing oncoming Calamities. Furthermore, these people just refer and compare to Disasters and Extreme Weather Conditions which are being experienced by such and such countries. So, they try to justify their failure in activating the Early Warning Systems, as duly required. The MMS is also responsible to track, monitor and disseminate Hazards. An Earthquake of Magnitude 4.0 occurred in the Ocean at 97 km of the South-West of Mauritius at 23:25:43 hours on Tuesday 27 February 2018. Tremours were felt in many regions of Mauritius, as witnessed by several citizens, including Reunion Sister Island. One person was affected when cracks in his house were discovered. Unfortunately the MMS issued news after 2hours 34 minutes 17 seconds, instead of Real-Time Alert. There are lots of such shortcomings. All these prove that the stakeholders of the Early Warning Systems are lazy, unprofessional and incompetent
  5. Ex-Minister of Environment, Hon. Dayal who was also responsible for the Disaster Management Centre, was sacked by the PM on grounds of alleged corruption (bribery). It happened on 23 March 2016 when the WMO was marking the World Meteorological Day. Besides, the Disaster Management Centre is still ‘Fetus-like’, ‘Ad-hoc basis’, ‘Ghost-like’ and ‘Reactive’ and
  6. It is disheartening to say that the First Lady President of the Republic of Mauritius- Dr. AG Fakim has resigned from her office at noon today 23 March 2018. She is alleged to have violated the Constitution of Mauritius (the Supreme Law of the land) on many counts. It is evident that 23 March WMD 2018 is not being marked in Mauritius this year. The Focus of the Amateur’  and 'Part-Time' Policy Makers and of related Institutions is, unfortunately, elsewhere or nowhere.  


There are surely many Member States of WMO which are in such or worse situations. The WMO is therefore requested to assess and report on such loopholes and shortcomings Member-Wise. Besides, WMO has the obligation to keep the follow up of all WMD Themes which have been marked so far and obtain progress reports form each Member. The excellent and much valuable ‘Understanding Clouds’ Theme of 2017, which is complementary to Scientific Forecast, seems to have not been implemented by the 191 Member States. It is by applying the Traditional, Indigenous and Local Knowledge/Practices (TILK/P) that Severe Tropical Cyclone ELIAKIM and a host of other Weather Events that 100% Perfection PREDICTION is possible. Refer to:

Moreover, the WMO is solemnly requested to clarify to such (idiot) Meteorologists and to the ignorant public that Satellites and Radars are considered as ‘Critical-Life-Saving-Tools’. Regional and International Centres and Institutions like NASA, NOAA, IMD, JAXA, ESA and others have invested massively and wisely on sophisticated Geostationary and Polar Orbiting Satellites for tracking Hazards from the Land, Oceans, Atmosphere and Space. Scientists and Researchers who work in these centres, merit our gratitude. They devote all their energy, time and knowledge to analyze, decode and disseminate crucial data and information for the Safety and Protection of Mankind world-wide. These are carried out and accessible freely to anyone. So, optimum use of these is demanded. WMO is also requested to train the whole Media who, normally, distort, censor, edit and digress crucial information targeted for the Safety and Protection of the populace. Such loopholes have been mentioned frequently in previous articles.

All these, illustrate that Disaster Resilience is Remote for many countries, like Mauritius, India, Nepal and several others.

The main reason for the assessment is to show that ‘Disaster Resilience’ is definitely the ‘Wealth of the Nation’ or else is it Wastage of Funds and of Resources. It is along this Path-Way towards Resilience that Sustainable Development is realizable.
