  Abbreviation: WHYCOS
  Description: The World Hydrological Cylce Observing System (WHYCOS) is a WMO programme primarily focused on strengthening technical and institutional capacities of National Hydrological Services, improving their cooperation in the management of shared water resources, and promoting free exchange of data in the field of hydrology. Implemented through various components at the regional and/or basin scale, the WHYCOS Programme coordinates measurement and collection of basic hydrological elements from networks of hydrological and meteorological stations, including quantity and quality data of surface and ground water. The provision of such data supports planning and operations of water resources projects and hydrological forecasting systems.
