Every year on March 23, the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) commemorates the founding of the World Meteorological Organization Convention, which came into effect on March 23, 1950.
The World Meteorological Organization (WMO), a United Nations organization, was established on March 23, 1950 to replace the International Meteorological Organization. It began operations in 1951 to coordinate member countries in the fields of meteorology, hydrology, and earth sciences to ensure the security of their citizens. The first World Meteorological Day was held on March 23, 1961.
