New Global Greenhouse Gas Monitoring Infrastructure

Recently the Executive Council of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) has endorsed the plan for a new Global Greenhouse Gas Monitoring Infrastructure (GGGMI).

  • The initiative supports action to address the information gap related to emissions and to reduce heat-trapping gases that fuel global warming.
  • Many current international and national activities dealing with greenhouse gases are mainly supported by the research community.
  • Currently, there is no mechanism to share surface and space-based greenhouse gas observational or modeling products with each other in a timely manner. In such a situation, the GGGMI of WMO will remove these shortcomings.
  • According to the resolution, WMO will coordinate efforts within a cooperative international framework to leverage all existing greenhouse gas monitoring capabilities, all relevant modeling and data assimilation capabilities – in a unified and operational framework.
  • WMO is engaged in activities such as weather forecasting and climate analysis and greenhouse gas monitoring, research and related services under the Global Atmosphere Watch (GAW) established in the year 1989 and the Integrated Global Greenhouse Gas Information System (IG3IS).
  • Now it wants to use those experiences in the new Global Greenhouse Gas Monitoring Infrastructure (GGGMI) initiative.

World Meteorological Organisation

  • It is an intergovernmental organization established by the ratification of the Meteorological Organization Convention on March 23, 1950.

  • The headquarters of the World Meteorological Organization with 191 members is in Geneva.
  • It is noteworthy that World Meteorological Day is celebrated every year on 23 March.
