PMC Meetings

The PMC Meetings

The PMC meeting started in 1993 as the Regional Meteorological Services Directors (RMSD) and first met in Port Vila, Vanuatu to discuss how the National Meteorological and Hydrological Services (NMHSs) can best be supported in order to effectively contribute to strengthening the resilience and security of the Pacific Communities to climate change. The meeting was a recommendation from a study carried out in 1991 called the Changing Climate in Paradise which emphasized on the need for annual meetings by the Pacific Island Meteorological and Hydrological Services to provide a foundation for regional cooperation in climate monitoring and climate data services. Eighteen (18) years and 14 RMSD meetings later in 2011, the 1st Meeting of the Pacific Meteorological Council was held in Majuro, Republic of Marshall Islands on the 8th - 12th of August 2011 and endorsed the Pacific Islands Meteorological Strategy (PIMS) 2012-2021 and the Pacific Meteorological Desk Partnership (PMDP), hosted and based within the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP).
