The Egyptian General Meteorological Authority (EGM), one of the bodies affiliated with the Ministry of Civil Aviation, won a seat in the Executive Council of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) for a four-year period from 2023 to 2027.
The elections were held at the 19th session of the Geneva-based World Meteorological Congress, with the participation of 163 countries.
This came during the celebration of the 150th anniversary of the establishment of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO-IMO), as well as with the launch of the International Early Warning for All initiative, which aims to preserve lives and property from the dangers of climate change.
Egypt's winning of this seat comes after the unremitting efforts exerted by the General Authority of Meteorology during the last period through fruitful cooperation and continuous coordination with the World Meteorological Organization, especially during the Conference of Parties Concerned with Climate Change (COP27), which was held recently in Sharm El-Sheikh last year.
