The World Meteorological Day 2020 highlights the theme of 'Climate and Water', with a focus on "managing climate and water in a more coordinated and sustainable manner because they are inextricably linked." Information and outreach materials can be found on the World Meteorological Day website and Trello board. Below is an animation created to highlight the event.
