ArabiaWeather - Climate change represents a real and undeniable danger that threatens our entire civilization. Its effects are beginning to appear before our eyes, but it will become catastrophic if we do not act now.

That is why the theme of World Meteorological Day 2024 is: “At the forefront of climate action”.

Sustainable Development Goal 13 commits us to “take urgent action to address climate change and its impacts.” Progress towards this goal reinforces progress on all other sustainable development goals.

The role played by the organization’s community is indispensable for climate action and achieving sustainable development goals in all fields. This role has great societal importance: in reducing hunger and poverty; promoting health and well-being; ensuring clean water and affordable clean energy; protecting life in water and land; And enhancing the resilience of our cities and communities in the face of climate change.

Weather and climate forecasts contribute to enhancing food production and moving closer to the goal of eliminating hunger. The combination of epidemiology and climate information helps understand and manage climate-affected diseases. Early warning systems help reduce poverty by giving people the opportunity to prepare for extreme weather events and reduce their impact.

The organization, with its members and partners, leads the full value cycle from science to services to action, in the interest and good of society. They enhance knowledge of our Earth system, monitor the state of climate and water resources, provide scientific information to inform efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and provide climate services and early warnings to support climate change adaptation actions.

Science is an essential foundation for devising solutions and can constitute a tremendous momentum towards achieving sustainable development goals in all fields. We are united in science.

The organization will remain at the forefront of climate action, as we embark on a journey of collaboration and innovation, harnessing our collective expertise to overcome challenges, and achieve our shared vision of a safer and more resilient world for generations to come.
