WMO Information System (WIS)
WMO Congress XIV (2003)
“The multiplicity of systems of the different Programmes causes incompatibilities, inefficiencies, duplication of efforts and higher overall costs.”
Congress approved the concept of FWIS, which will provide a single coordinated global infrastructure for the collection and sharing of information in support of all WMO and related international programmes.
