WIGOS and WIS are essential for our NMHSs to provide enhanced, efficient and cost effective services across all WMO activities, for all WMO Programmes including the GFCS and to support all WMO Members.
They are core capacities, foundational to performing any other function of an NMHS, for delivery of any service and essential for the future interoperability of data and products.
