In 2001, the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) continued to facilitate worldwide cooperation in the generation and exchange of meteorological and hydrological information and the application of meteorology to aviation, shipping, water problems and agriculture. It also promoted operational hydrology and encouraged research and training in meteorology. The WMO Executive Council, at its fifty-third session (Geneva, 5-15 June), reviewed the organization's programmes and activities, including coordination in the UN system of geosciences and their applications for the benefit of humankind; free and unrestricted exchange of international meteorological and hydrological data and products; climate-related matters; hydrology and water resources; and the role and operation of national meteorological and hydrological services. WMO's membership remained at 179 States and six Territories in 2001.
