In 2019 WMO Congress endorsed Resolution 79: Open Consultative Platform "PARTNERSHIP AND INNOVATION FOR THE NEXT GENERATION OF WEATHER AND CLIMATE INTELLIGENCE" through which Members agreed that the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) should continue to play a central role in facilitating the dialogue between the public, private and academic sectors. Also, regional associations are requested to stimulate informal consultation with stakeholders from all sectors, across the value chain, to analyze and build an understanding of sub-regional and regional circumstances in public-private engagement, including legal frameworks that govern PPE and provide regional inputs through the Open Consultative Platform (OCP). The High-Level Regional Forum will bring together the Permanent Representatives of RA IV and high-level regional representatives of the private and academic sectors to discuss region IV-specific issues, opportunities, and initiatives for leveraging cooperation and collaboration between sectors that enhance socioeconomic benefits of weather and climate service as well as contributing to the executive action plan of Early Warnings for All: the UN Global Early Warning Initiative for the Implementation of Climate Adaptation.
