Supporting international coordinated research efforts in the polar regions that have undergone significant changes in recent years is the goal of the World Meteorological Organization's (WMO) Polar Prediction Project (PPP) within the World Weather Research Programm (WWRP). The mission of the PPP is to

"promote cooperative international research enabling development of improved weather and environmental prediction services for the polar regions, on time scales from hours to seasonal".
