World officials agree to share ecology data

At a Washington D.C. meeting in July 2003 about 30 countries around the world agreed to exchange data and expand monitoring of the earth's atmosphere, oceans and land.  This monitoring of meteorological data is important for farmers all over the world because it improves forecasting of rains and drought. 

Earth observation system will reduce damage from storms, increase food supplies and decrease damage from threatening wild fires around the globe.  It will also help to understand the causes and risks of global warming.  This international cooperation is very necessary for the progress of developing countries.  President Bush and his administration committed $25 million as a contribution to developing countries.
