The Global Climate Observing System was established in 1992 to ensure that the observations and information needed to address climate-related issues are obtained and made available to all potential users. It facilitates the taking of the needed observations by national or international organisations in support of their own requirements as well as of common goals. It provides an operational framework for integrating, and enhancing as needed, observational systems of participating countries and organisations into a comprehensive system focused on the requirements for climate issues.
