Highlighted in the article are the contributions of the Organs of the CMO and the National Meteorological and Hydrometeorological Services to the “science for sustainable development” value chain, which offers many tangible benefits to safety at sea, disaster risk reduction, climate change adaptation, sustainable marine ecosystem management and related economic sectors such as tourism, fisheries, transportation, and mineral resource recovery.

Through the efforts of its various Organs, the CMO is making a tangible contribution to the goals of the UN Decade of Ocean Science, by ensuring a safe and well-predicted ocean, through: accurate and timely observations; research that improves the prediction of hazards such as hurricanes; capacity development and training in marine science and service delivery; development of products and services tailored for the maritime sector; cooperating with other regional stakeholders engaged in the coastal and marine environment.
