World Meteorological Day 2023: Meaning
Due to climate change, extreme weather, climate and water resource phenomena are increasingly recurring and more severe in many parts of the world. We face a number of related dangers that are increasing due to population growth, urbanization and environmental degradation. Impact-based forecasts inform people about how the weather will develop and are vital in saving lives and livelihoods. It is said that one in three people are still not fully protected by early warning systems.
Therefore, coordination between national hydro-meteorological agencies, disaster management agencies and development agencies is crucial for better prevention, preparedness and response. Therefore, preparation and action at the right time, in the right place play an important role in saving lives and protecting the livelihoods of communities everywhere, both now and in the future.
