Resolution 5.3/1(EC-68) defined the Terms of Reference for the CBS-led Review of Emerging Data Issues.

Scope of the review

1.1 Taking into account the issues identified by the Seventeenth World Meteorological Congress in Resolution 65 (Cg-67), the essays on emerging data issues prepared by presidents of technical commissions following the meeting of presidents of technical commissions in January 2016, and the outcomes of the May 2016 meeting of the Executive Council Task Team on Data Policy and Emerging Issues, the Commission for Basic Systems (CBS), in coordination with other technical commissions, shall prepare a review encompassing the following areas:

(a) Further clarification and delineation of the categories and types of big or emerging data and data sources, with examples of practical forms of use in order to identify the real consequences of these types of data;

(b) An overview of technical issues and application areas with respect to big or emerging data sources of significance to WMO, identifying the relevant WMO bodies and processes appropriate for addressing them, as well as gaps;

(c) An analysis of the structure of the private sector as it applies to this area, identifying key products and their input data and sources, major stakeholders or stakeholder groups and potential partners;

(d) Identification of specific areas and recommendations, and strategies for engagement by WMO and WMO Members with respect to big and emerging data, drawing upon practical experiences and lessons learned;
(e) Future trends and their implications for WMO in this area.

2. Organization of the review

Working structures
2.1 Working structures to be engaged in the review include:

(a) Establishment of a CBS-led review team on emerging data issues, with the president of CBS as the chairperson, with members consisting of relevant technical commissions, and a focal point of the Executive Council Task Team on Data Policy and Emerging Issues;

(b) Engagement of, and consultations with, relevant bodies, as necessary, through the review process, including experts from WMO co-sponsored programmes, a representative of the United Nations Global Pulse initiative on big data for development and humanitarian action, as a means of ensuring good linkages with big data user communities, and private sector representatives.

Implementation steps

2.2 Steps for completion of the review shall include:

(a) The review team will plan three meetings to complete the task, with the first review team meeting before the sixteenth session of the Commission for Basic Systems (CBS 16, 23-29 November 2016, China), to generate the initial input for a work-in-progress draft, which will be provided to the CBS session for comments and improvements;

(b) A first draft of the review report will be submitted to the sixty-ninth session of the Executive Council for comments and guidance;

(c) A revised draft will be sent to Members, technical commissions and regional associations for open consultation, and the revised report incorporating the comments received will be submitted to the seventieth session of the Executive Council for endorsement, with a target of submitting the final report to the Eighteenth World Meteorological Congress for approval.
