World Meteorological Organization (WMO) was established on March 23, 1950.
It is an intergovernmental organization with a membership of 193 Member States and Territories.
Every year, March 23, is celebrated as World Meteorological Day (WMD).
The WMO announces a slogan and theme for WMD which is different each year.
The theme of World Meteorological Day this year, for March 23, 2020, is Climate and Water.
It will align with the theme of World Water Day 2020 which is on March 22.
The main focus will be on climate change and water concerns around the globe.
The slogan for WMD 2020 is "Count Every Drop, Every Drop Counts".
