Tropical Cyclone Programme (TCP)

The Tropical Cyclone Programme (TCP) allows tropical cyclone forecasters to access various sources that provide conventional and specialized data/products, including those from Numerical Weather Predictions (NWP) and remote sensing observations, as well as forecasting tools on the development, motion, intensification and wind distribution of tropical cyclones.

As part of the Weather and Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) Services Department, the Programme is tasked with establishing national and regionally coordinated systems to ensure that the loss of life and damage caused by tropical cyclones are reduced to a minimum.

The TCP is effected on both national and regional levels through cooperative action and covers activities of Members, WMO regional associations, other international and regional bodies and the WMO Secretariat.
