Gender equality and the empowerment of women are among my objectives as WMO Secretary-General.  The International Geneva Champions Initiative has my full support for moving the agenda forward.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
  • Continue the promotion of the gender aspect, especially female representation, at the level of the WMO Secretariat, WMO governance, and the wider WMO community.

  • Enhance capacity for female expertise through training for female leaders in the WMO community.
