The Joint WMO-IOC Technical Commission for Oceanography and Marine Meteorology

Services and Forecasting Systems Program Area (SFSPA)

JCOMM promotes a state-of-the-art globally distributed and inter-connected system based on present and next-generation technologies and capabilities. The system is responsive to the evolving needs of all users of marine data and products and a close dialog with the user community is fundamental to the system design. In addition, JCOMM promotes the implementation of an outreach programme to enhance the national capacity of all maritime countries to work effectively for the maritime community and the management of the marine environment.

Responding to the decisions and requests of the WMO Members and IOC Membr States, contributing to the implementation of the Global Framework for Climate Services (GFCS) for marine and coastal communities should be a high priority of JCOMM/SFSPA for the intersessional period (2012-2017), along with fulfilling the core service mandates of JCOMM in providing maritime safety services as well as supporting marine and coastal emergency responses and risk reduction.
