ABSTRACT
Monitoring of progress in the implementation of the Paris Agreement as well as the Katowice Climate Package is not possible without conducting observations and measurements of the status of individual elements of the atmosphere and hydrosphere using a uniform methodology. These measurements in Poland are carried out by the Institute of Meteorology and Water Management – National Research Institute, which this year is celebrating its 100th anniversary, playing a role of the national hydrological and meteorological survey. Measurement data collected, processed and made available by IMGW-PIB improve the ability to identify and assess potential threats early by using modern tools to detect extreme weather events, and thus allow public authorities and the public to provide up-to-date data on the state of the atmosphere and hydrosphere, forecasts and warnings in both everyday and threat situations. The data collected and processed by the Institute are the basis for determining the level of achievement of the objectives of the Paris Agreement, but also for monitoring, forecasting and planning necessary actions in the territory of Poland. These activities, in order to ensure consistency and correctness of interpretation as well as planning activities implementing the Paris Agreement by recipients and users of forecasting systems all over the world, are carried out in cooperation with hydrological and meteorological survey and services within the World Meteorological Organization.
