Dear Colleagues,

As you may be aware, the Global Climate Observing System (GCOS) Programme has prepared a new Implementation Plan in consultation with the global climate scientific and observing community which will be submitted to the UNFCCC for its Conference of the Parties (COP-22) which starts on 7 November 2016, in Marrakesh, Morocco.

GCOS published its first Implementation Plan in 2004 and updated it in 2010. Previous GCOS Implementation Plans have guided major investments in observational systems, such as satellite systems and international cooperation on ocean systems. As GCOS serves as the climate observation component of the Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS), we very much welcome this Plan.

This 2016 Plan is a new plan taking into account the latest developments in Earth observations and climate policy. The next update is due in five years, with another update in 10 years.

The public review of the new GCOS Implementation Plan is open until Monday, 5 September.

All reviewers contributing comments will be credited in the final report. Click here to participate in the review<http://gcos.wmo.int/>.

With appreciation for your time.
