In 2005, 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, agriculture and other activities. During the fifty-seventh session of the WMO Executive Council (Geneva, 21 June–1 July), participants reviewed the activities of WMO and National Meteorological and Hydrological Services (NMHSs). It also addressed several issues, including WMO management reform; WMO Information System; locust menace in North and West Africa; strengthening regional and subregional offices; and strengthening contributions by NMHSs to hydro-meteorological risk assessment at the national level. WMO's membership remained at 181 States and six Territories at the end of 2005.
