The draft 2016 GCOS Implementation Plan will be open for public review from 25th July to 5th Septemeber 2016. 

Comments should be submitted by email to the secretatiat GCOSReviewatwmo [dot] int before 5th September using the spreadsheet.

Reviewers should:

  • use the spreadsheet as it will enable the GCOS Secretariat to track each comment and ensure they are all fairly considered.

  • where possible, provide precise suggestions for new or edited text

  • meet the deadline: as time is short dealing with late comments will be difficult

The Implementation Plan is divided into two parts; Part 1 which is of a more general nature and will have a wider audience and part 2 which is more technical and aimed more at those responsible for planning and making observations. Reviewers are encouraged to look at as much of the document as they can but are free to concentrate on those most sections applicable to themselves.
